OSHA Compliance Missteps: The Top 10 To Avoid For 2015
|Date / Time:
Question: What’s a great way to identify and correct safety deficiencies that could lead to serious injuries and costly Cal/OSHA violations?
Answer: Dive into the types of safety violations OSHA has been frequently citing organizations for!
For FY 2014, fall protection, hazard communication, scaffolding, respiratory protection, and lockout/tagout topped out on OSHA’s Top 10 violations list, as well as many other “familiar faces.”
Examining the “hard lessons” others have learned can help you evaluate potential gaps in your overall safety compliance strategy. This can be a big challenge, though—unless you’ve got a seasoned pro guiding you on the most-effective ways to use that data!
Join us for this webinar when our presenters, seasoned OSHA lawyers who have helped many companies address compliance challenges before, during, and after an inspection, will provide a helpful assessment of current Top 10 violation categories and tips on how to use that data to develop your current OSHA compliance health.
Don’t miss this opportunity to discover how to fortify your safety programs against costly enforcement action for noncompliance in 2015. Space is limited, so register soon!
