What is an OSHA Inspection?

Jan 08, 2021

OSHA, also known as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, enforces safety and health guidelines in over 7 million workplaces across the U.S. 

An OSHA inspection can happen at any time. There are times when an inspector may arrive on-site as part of a periodic inspection. Other times, a company may be in violation of health and safety rules. There are times when employee whistleblowers may call OSHA to report unsafe conditions. 

If a person is injured on the job to negligent and unsafe conditions, they should consult a Brighton Beach personal injury lawyer. A Brighton Beach accident lawyer can help preserve your rights and get the compensation you deserve for time off from work, pain and suffering, and other damages. 

If OSHA shows up at a business to inspect, employers do have the right to refuse entry. However, this is ill-advised. In most cases, OSHA can get a warrant to gain entry into the facility. 

Compliance Safety and Helth Officers (CSHO) are responsible for inspecting the work site for problems. They will always carefully inspect areas like stairwells, railings, places where trips and falls can happen, defective machinery, and more. Industrial hygienists evaluate health issues such as respirators, asbestos, and airborne chemicals. Violations of these types of issues can potentially result in accidents, injuries, and deaths.
