Regarding OSHA inspections, we recently received the following question from a client; the answer may surprise you.
am taking over OSHA compliance for our medical practice and the previous safety
officer is telling everyone that OSHA will never inspect us because of our
small size. I do not believe this is true, but I need proof. Can you help?
A: Actually, small practice comprised the greatest percentage of practices that OSHA inspected last year. According to 2010 OSHA inspection reports, almost 75% of all inspections were small practices.
