OSHA Training Requirements Montgomery County, PA
If an OSHA inspector walks through the front door of your business today, are you prepared?
The majority of OSHA inspections occur because a vindictive employee, current or former, filed an OSHA complaint regarding a workplace safety hazard. What if the complaint is invalid or fabricated, you might ask? It doesn’t matter. OSHA will investigate any and all such calls to ensure that your workplace is safe and compliant with OSHA regulations.
What do OSHA inspectors do?
1) Meet with management. The assigned OSHA inspector will conduct a meeting to explain why they’re inspecting your facility. They will not reveal which one of your current or former employees filed the complaint.
2) Audit paperwork. The inspector will review relevant written safety programs, records of safety training, injury logs, and many other documents available.
3) Inspect your facility. The inspector will do a thorough walkthrough of the workplace looking for any violations of OSHA standards.
4) Interview your employees. OSHA may interview employees at random to test their knowledge of your company’s safety programs and get a feel for your overall safety environment.
5) Share results. Finally, the inspector will meet with management again to report any formal violations and notify you of any additional investigations or sampling needed

The OSHA Inspection Process
Most OSHA inspections originate from complaints by current or former employees that alert them to workplace safety concerns. OSHA responds to all such complaints by doing a thorough investigation of the facility. At the beginning of the inspection process, the OSHA inspector will meet with the management of the company and explain why their facility is being audited. The inspector reviews the written plans for their worker safety programs, looks at the safety training records and studies the injury logs and all other relevant documents.
The OSHA inspector will then walk through the facility to determine if the work environment is safe and if there are violations of the required workplace standards. They then interview random employees to assess their knowledge of the safety programs of the company.
After an OSHA Inspection
Once their investigation is completed, the inspector meets with management and provides them with a report notifying the company if the workplace is safe and in full compliance or if any violations of workplace safety laws and health and safety training have been identified. If the workplace is deemed to be unsafe for workers by the OSHA inspectors or the company does not provide the requisite health and safety training, the company can be fined and given steps they must take to meet OSHA compliance regulations. At no time will OSHA reveal which employee filed the complaint.
