– HR Manager, Healthcare Industry


OSHA has a multitude of penalties tied quite frankly to the extent of the infraction. For most companies in white collar businesses, OSHA is mostly a non-issue, unless you also have a warehouse, storage site, or manufacturing facility, to name a few. The best way to hedge against these issues is to contact your insurance broker who usually can arrange for a free audit of your OSHA practices, pointing out the needed fixes.
