The OSHA Mock Inspection Made Simple

Sarah Alholm, MAS

This book is a comprehensive self-inspection guide for outpatient medical practices. Safety officers can use the tools in the book to evaluate their program and identify opportunities for improvement and education. Managers of multi-location practices will find this resource invaluable for conducting a thorough compliance assessment of remote physician offices, clinics, and other facilities that are assessed less regularly.

The strategies outlined in this book are data-driven, with each topic stemming from real OSHA citations issued to ambulatory medical facilities within the last two years. These are the areas where OSHA inspectors are focusing and fining organizations.

This book will give you:

  • Tools to assess OSHA compliance
  • A breakdown of what OSHA inspectors look for during inspections
  • An evaluation form to conduct a mock inspection of your records review process
  • Documentation to help you conduct the walkthrough portion of the self-assessment
  • Templates for written plans that you can customize for your facility
  • Sample exposure control and emergency action plans
