You have been the new plant safety manager for a little over two months. During this timeframe you have had the opportunity to review the limited number of safety procedures left in your office by your predecessor and you are beginning to move forward with your safety responsibilities by following the requirements in the procedures.

As part of the Plant Manager’s commitment to safety (our second blog of this series) you have had regularly scheduled meetings with the plant manager to discuss relevant plant activities. Additionally, you have written a standard for “When OSHA Comes Knocking”, so you know your organization is ready. Just when you think you are starting to get a grasp on your new role and you are feeling pretty relaxed, you receive a phone call from the receptionist….OSHA has just arrived!

Following the procedure you wrote, you are well prepared for OSHA’s visit, so don’t panic. This post, on the Antea Group blog, will highlight what to do and what to expect when OSHA arrives.
