Auto Parts Suppliers Fall under OSHA’s Focus

Write your post here

cb303bf7970a08842212ecd44cca868d.jpg?t=1Due to hazards associated with the auto-parts-supplier industry, OSHA has launched a Regional Emphasis Program (REP) to improve conditions. The inspection program will last through January 2015, and will cover Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi.

Most auto-parts suppliers can expect a comprehensive OSHA inspection within the next two years. Inspections will begin 30 days after notification letters have been mailed to applicable employers. At this point employers can contact their personal Environment and Safety consultants for onsite visits, or can contact OSHA’s consultation service providers. Any consultations provided by OSHA will be independent from the inspections and will not result in penalties, only education.

If you fall under the Southeastern region and will be visited by OSHA, you can prepare for the inspection by:

  • Ensuring that your illness record-keeping forms are current, accurate, and readily available.
  • Reviewing your written programs. They must be:
    • Up-to-date
    • Compliant and consistent with the floor plan.
  • Ensuring that training is current and documented.
  • Ensuring that employees are following company policies and training.

If you need help preparing for your OSHA inspection, contact your KPA engineer or contact info@kpaonline.com.
