Plant Site Inspections
Many companies have unknown OSHA safety violations and other non-compliance issues which can cost thousands of dollars. Further, under unchecked hazardous conditions, companies can be held liable for employee injuries or death. Our plant site inspection simulates an OSHA inspection. We will conduct a comprehensive on-site safety evaluation for potential hazards and OSHA violations. Each inspection includes a detailed report of all findings. The report can be used as a guide for correcting any inadequacies or exposures, thus avoiding injuries, fatalities, as well as, fines from OSHA. In short, we inspect before OSHA inspects so you can protect your employees and address problem areas.
