Want to Avoid an OSHA Violation? Here Are Some Helpful Tips
Avoiding an OSHA citation means avoiding workplace violations which can and very often do result in preventable accidents, injuries, and deaths. It also means avoiding what can be serious blows to a businesses’ brand, reputation, and bottom line.
Because there are considerable risks to violating workplace health and safety standards, taking a proactive approach to compliance (and actively maintaining compliance efforts) is one of the most important things an employer can do – both for their workers and their business interests.
