Why Should you Attend
Recently, OSHA issued over 40,000 citations for safety violations in the workplace. In one example, a HVAC company was fined over $1.2 million for recordkeeping violations. Many organizations have learned to comply with OSHA regulations and have avoided fines and citations when audited by OSHA.
Imagine that OSHA showed up at your place of business today. What would you do? How would you handle the audit? Frightening perhaps to think about, but in reality there is no need to fear an OSHA visit - if you understand compliance and your organization’s responsibilities. This webinar will help attendees better understand health and safety compliance issues for their organization and they will never fear OSHA again.
