If OSHA authorizes an inspection, the OSHA compliance officer will ask the employer to abate the hazard voluntarily and to remove endangered employees from exposure. Should the employer fail to do this, OSHA may apply to the nearest Federal District Court for legal action to correct the Page 33 situation. Before the OSHA inspector leaves the premises, he or she will advise all affected employees of the hazard and post an Imminent Danger Notice, a step rarely taken by the agency. This is serious business and an employer needs to handle an investigation thoroughly and correct the situation promptly.
Inform all employees about OSHA (through the yellow notice-board, workplace poster #2203, or state equivalent). □ Inspect workplace conditions so that they conform to applicable standards. □ Minimize or reduce hazards. □ Ensure employees have and use safe tools and equipment, personal protective equipment, and that such equipment is properly maintained. □ Use color codes, posters, labels or signs where needed to warn employees of potential hazards. □ Establish or update safety and health operating procedures so that employees follow these requirements.
Page 39 MANAGEMENT ACTION STEPS BEFORE INSPECTION 1. Be prepared for an OSHA visit—sooner or later one is likely to occur at your facility. 2. Be prepared to be flexible—OSHA compliance officers arrive unannounced, want to meet with the ranking employer representative and rarely can be put off or have the visit postponed. 3. Be prepared so that you can present your facility in its best light to the agency inspector. 4. Appoint a local “OSHA Coordinator” who can coordinate preparations for an OSHA visit and be the Company’s chief representative or spokesperson in dealing with OSHA, perhaps the human resources manager, the safety specialist or the administrative manager.
