OSHA Inspection Preparedness

An OSHA inspection can happen at any time. You won’t have advance warning that an inspector is going to show up, so it’s crucial to always be ready. Fox Valley Safety will work with your key managers and supervisors to ensure everyone knows their role when OSHA comes knocking.

What prompts an OSHA inspection?

Many different circumstances can prompt an OSHA inspection, ranging from workplace death to mere chance.  The following are some of the reasons why OSHA may inspect your facility:

  • Catastrophes and fatalities
  • Employee complaints
  • Referrals, which can come from any entity, including another government agency
  • Programmed inspections, in which worksites are randomly selected, or based on emphasis programs, injury rates, or previous citations
  • Follow-up inspections
