RENO - SPARKS OSHA inspections

February 14, 2014

 

OSHA is actively conducting safety inspections either by referral or complaint.  A referral is a source outside the company, a complaint is an internally sourced inspection.  Then there are planned inspections by business type.

 

In these days where companies are laying off employees even more complaints are hitting local businesses.
