It’s time for a worksite inspection. Do you know what to do?

Oct. 1, 2021
Test your knowledge to see if you are prepared for an on-site visit from OSHA.

Federal law entitles all employees to a safe workplace, free of known health and safety hazards. It’s the role of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure the effective enforcement of safety and health requirements. To do so, OSHA employs Inspectors (also known as Compliance Safety and Health Officers) to ensure workplaces follow OSHA requirements, and help employers and workers reduce on-the-job hazards and prevent injuries, illnesses, and deaths in the workplace.

On July 29, 2021, the House of Representatives passed its 2022 Labor-HHS-Education appropriations package. The legislation sent over by the House includes $691.7 million in funding for OSHA. The goal of increased funding is to rebuild enforcement capacity, expand whistleblower programs, and increase outreach and compliance assistance.

What does that mean for you? The frequency of OSHA inspections will greatly increase starting in 2022. So how can you be prepared when an OSHA Compliance Officer comes knocking? Take this quiz and test your knowledge.
