A vital part of maintaining a successful business is cultivating a safe and healthy working environment. Most companies strive to accomplish that and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration provides educational information to help them. OSHA also establishes regulations to hold companies accountable. While all companies should aim for OSHA compliance, the pressures of running a profitable business and the volume of rules to follow can make it challenging. A Tennessee OSHA defense attorney from Cotney Attorneys & Consultants can take this important task off your hands.

What Does OSHA Look for When Visiting Your Site?

OSHA determines if a company is compliant via their inspection process. While in most cases inspections are unannounced, you can gain insight on the types of items they may look for by examining their annual list of most cited violations. A recent list included violations involving:

  • Fall protection
  • Lockout/Tagout
  • Ladders
  • Hazard communications
  • Electrical, wiring methods
  • Powered industrial trucks
  • Scaffolding
  • Machine guarding
  • Respiratory protection
