In recent years, OSHA has moved beyond hazard control oversight to an enforcement body that oversees a large number of workplace health and safety areas. OSHA can now fine employers directly for retaliatory policies or procedures, even without an employee compliant.
OSHA continues to enforce their health and safety requirements during the COVID-19 Pandemic and has issued new interim guidance for all businesses to follow when reopening, based on four occupational risk exposure levels. Organizations need to assess hazards that workers may be exposed to, especially in the terms of communicable diseases like COVID-19.
Effective risk management requires a careful look at health and safety practices, policies and record keeping procedures before OSHA knocks at the door. This Audit will help employers proactively identify OSHA compliance risks.
