• Bonus: Exercise with class participants on preventing accidents
Session 4: 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.
OSHA’s enforcement efforts have never been more aggressive than right now. That means, your organization needs to be on the lookout for safety violations that result in large monetary fines. Stay one-step ahead of the surprise OSHA inspection by learning how to audit for OSHA compliance.

• Elements of an OSHA comprehensive inspection
• Recognize the OSHA audit triggers
Session 5: 3:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

• Best practices for creating an audit report
• Elements of the audit response
• Importance of the closure statement
Session 6: 3:30 p.m.-4:00 p.m.
