While avoiding an OSHA inspection may not be possible, employers can avoid OSHA citations. The best way to do this, in part, is by performing self-inspections and audits. This is essential if employers are to know whether or not OSHA requirements have been met. Inspections and audits help ensure compliance because the process requires a close examination of the workplace and processes for safety issues at all levels of the organization.
The regulations governing general industry employers are often very detailed and complex. The purpose of the Workplace Inspections & Audits Manual is to provide insight into the self-inspection and audit process and related requirements and offer assistance for mastering compliance.
