HOUSTON, January 18, 2022 (Newswire.com) - The Biden administration is stepping up enforcement of OSHA inspections and adding nearly 1,500 inspectors in the country by 2024, threatening the status of hundreds of businesses beginning in 2022.
Pressure from overwhelming unmet OSHA complaints has driven up $254.6 million more in spending from 2021 for a total of $664.4 million in the 2022 budget. As a result, it is highly anticipated that the addition of new compliance safety and health officers will drastically heighten the number of inspections in the new year. Even without a company history of violations, businesses are strongly encouraged to anticipate surprise inspections or investigations.
Businesses of all kinds need to take action to ensure workplace hazards training is efficient and up to date to ensure that they are not audited and fined for gaps in compliance matters. Many businesses will need to implement strategies to mitigate potential issues, such as having injury prevention training, building a reputation for safety within the company, and having oversight from safety directors on staff. Some businesses need immediate help.
