Today’s OSHA is deeply focused on enforcement.

Now is the time to be sure your organization is prepared if OSHA shows up for an inspection. This seminar is designed to assist employers in preparing for an OSHA inspection and for handling all phases of OSHA proceedings. In addition, the seminar will include updated information on changed OSHA laws and guidance.
