Some years back we attended a conference on OSHA compliance and our presenter provided a list of the top ten problems/hazards that OSHA inspectors look for during an inspection.
We’ve provided that list below because we thought it might be (a) a good way to help you prepare for an upcoming OSHA inspection but more importantly (b) a good way to focus your general workplace safety efforts in hazard identification and control.
Stay tuned, because we’re going to follow-up in short order with two additional blog posts focusing on:
- Common triggers of an OSHA inspection
- What happens during an OSHA inspection?
Please share your own insights and experiences on this issue as well.
One last note–don’t confuse this with the more commonly-seen Top Ten OSHA Violations/Citations list, although we’ll make some points about how they’re similar as we go through the list below.
