Effective on August 1, 2016, OSHA will increase its penalties for workplace safety violations the first time in 25 years. The initial hike will raise fines by approximately 80 percent.
While the intent behind OSHA’s regulations is to keep workers safe, an OSHA audit or temporary worker inspection could lead to serious fines. This is especially true for construction companies that rely on temporary workers.
Our Partners at Assurex Global in collaboration with an industry legal expert authored the white paper, Risk Management Considerations for Temporary Workers. This white paper provides tips for avoiding an OSHA audit, and it reviews the types of documentation OSHA requests if you are audited.
By reading the white paper, you will learn about:
- The three most common types of information OSHA requests during an inspection
- The two-step process used by OSHA to decide whether more than one employer may be cited for violations
- The five tips for avoiding an OSHA citation
