OSHA Investigations webinar
Prepare and understand how to exercise your rights
By Tim O’Toole
The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will present OSHA Investigations on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, at 10:00 AM CDT.
Every employer should strive to maintain a safe and OSHA compliant workplace. Not only are customers, insurers and others increasingly scrutinizing employers’ OSHA records as a condition of doing business, but OSHA penalties and citations can be substantial - as much as $70,000 for a single willful or repeat violation. Failure to properly prepare for an inspection, or being unaware of your rights, may lead to serious financial consequences.
Do you ever wonder what OSHA inspectors are looking for during an investigation? OSHA’s purpose is to gather evidence so citations and penalties can be issued and later affirmed. This informative webinar will help contractors prepare and understand how to exercise their rights - prior to, during and after OSHA inspections. The webinar will also provide strategies on how to respond to OSHA inspections.
