He or she will observe hazards and whether any violations are present. An inspector may point out problems that can corrected. Employers should these issues immediately, though quickly be correct they will still be cited for violations. During the tour the inspector will also look at worksite injury/illness records, assess the company's health and safety program OSHA and talk with employees about their impressions of safety in the facility. 2014 Creative Safety Supply 4 Closing Conference The inspector will inform the employer and employee representatives of his observations and give a general sense of the findings. At this time you will learn possible courses of action including following up with OSHA's area office with questions or contest- ing the findings. 02014 Creative Safety Supply Violations and Penalties The results of an OSHA inspection will arrive by certified mail. If your company violated any OSHA standards, you will receive citations explaining what requirements were violated, what the penalties are and how soon corrections to hazards need to be made. You will need to post these citations in the relevant areas until the problems are fixed (or for three days, whichever is longer) so OSHA employees are aware of the issue. 02014 Creative Safety Supply Resources: CREATIVE safety supply 1-866-777-1360 Creative Safety Supply is committed to being your safety and labeling experts.
