About this Webinar

OSHA inspections don’t come with a prior warning, so your business always needs to be prepared. Due to the changing political climate, OSHA is increasing in-person inspections at all types of workplaces, utilizing all enforcement tools as it has historically done. What if an inspector turns up at your door? It can happen anytime with no advance warning. This webinar will help you better protect your employees and make a huge difference in how your company fares in the event of an OSHA inspector visit. Don’t face OSHA alone and put your business at risk! Join us for inside track from our panel of OSHA experts.


  • Be prepared! We’ll cover why having a Safety Plan is so important
  • Train your leadership team and key employees on how to seamlessly hand an OSHA visit
  • Ensure OSHA compliance with an inspection checklist
  • Utilize best practices, avoid costly fines and handle the follow-up visit successfully.
