Budget reductions and changes in policy have contributed to an overall decrease in OSHA inspections in recent years. But even with fewer inspections, safety concerns are always a top priority for employers. Remember that less frequent visits from OSHA inspectors do not mean lower risk of accidents or decreased responsibility for safety and accident prevention in your workplace. To protect your workers and your business, always fully adhere to OSHA standards, and ensure proper installation and use of the safety equipment and rooftop fall protection systems. Participation in a qualified voluntary compliance program may also help you be exempt from future programmed visits.
