The objective of the site inspections is to identify safety program deficiencies and hazards. Independent safety inspection frequently reveal items that the company would never have noticed until an actual OSHA inspection occurred or an employee was either seriously or fatally injured.

The inspection will include a review of the OSHA 300 logs, Employee Training, Written Safety Program, SDS management, and a walk through observation of Unsafe Behaviors and conditions.
