Why Are Safety Inspections Important?
Safety inspections are needed to regularly examine your workplace compliance to OSHA guidelines for safety assessment and training. This includes your equipment, procedures, and any other hazards that might be overlooked on a daily basis. Many companies rely on daily, informal inspections to assess any workplace hazards, but these are not as thorough, and may overlook some essential areas. Having someone that is knowledgeable of OSHA standards provides an additional protective measure to track your compliance to safety regulations. Regularly tracking both positive and negative compliances can also reveal trends in your safety measures that show what areas need to be addressed. Having written records of inspections can help you strive for higher safety goals to improve the wellbeing of your employees.
