3 Scenarios where OSHA is sure to visit

OSHA Compliance Training is required at least annually. Most providers are aware that an injury or a compliant may result in an audit or fine. What providers may not be aware of is there are 3 scenarios where you are guaranteed to receive a visit AND a fine from OSHA.

They are:

1. If someone is killed
2. If someone loses a limb
3. If someone sustains an injury that requires them to be in the hospital for 24 hours or more

It is essential to ensure your staff have been properly trained and are aware of the policies and procedures in your practice. However, it doesn't matter if your staff knows the policies but chose not to follow them. Should OSHA visit your practice for any reason, they will certainly want to examine your training material, and evidence training has taken place. Not sure if your office training is current, or comprehensive enough to keep your staff safe?
