REGULATION NEWS & INFORMATION
Builders Association signs partnership to protect Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska workers
OSHA Area Offices in Kansas City, Omaha, St. Louis and Wichita recently
signed a partnership with the Builders Association of Kansas City to
promote safe and healthful work environments for construction and
general industry workers in Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska. The
partnership will encourage and provide methods for employers to
voluntarily improve their safety and health performance, as well as
recognize employers with exemplary safety and health programs.
OSHA's free on-site consultation program in Missouri takes new training tool on the road
free on-site safety and health consultation program in Missouri is
offering a new hands-on learning experience for employers to practice
finding and fixing workplace hazards. The "Hazard Lab" simulates many
workplace hazard scenarios, including those involving lockout/tagout,
bloodborne pathogens, electrical hazards, and hazard communication. The
next scheduled appearance of the Hazard Lab will be at the SHARP
Association Meeting in Rolla, Missouri, on March 22, 2013. To learn
more, read the consultation success story.
OSHA's On-Site Consultation Program offers free and confidential advice
to small and medium-sized businesses to help them identify and correct
hazards and improve their injury and illness prevention programs. To
request a free consultation, visit OSHA's On-Site Consultation page or call 800-321-OSHA (6742) to find an office in your area.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM AN OSHA INSPECTION
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is tasked with
protecting employees in the workplace from the many hazards they face.
As such, OSHA has the authority to inspect employers' facilities to
ensure that they are correctly following all applicable safety
standards [29 CFR 1903]. Should an OSHA inspector find a facility in
non-compliance, he or she may assign corrective actions and hand out
penalties. All workplaces should be prepared for an eventual
inspection, as OSHA has the authority to inspect any employer or
workplace with employees [29 CFR 1903.3].
OSHA inspections are generally carried out in four basic steps:
presenting credentials, opening conference, the walk-around, and
Step 1: Presenting Credentials
Keeping in mind that it is unlawful to obstruct an OSHA inspector, it's
important for employers to check for proper identification from a
compliance officer prior to allowing him or her access to records,
employees, or the facility. This is something that should normally be
done at the very beginning of the opening conference. Requesting
credentials is NOT considered to be an objection to the inspection; it
is simply ensuring that the inspector is legitimate.
Step 2: Opening Conference
During the opening conference, the compliance officer will explain the
purpose and scope of the inspection, as well as the safety standards
that will be applied. Inspections often occur for three major reasons:
A reportable accident occurs, an employee submits a complaint, or an
inspection is pre-scheduled at facilities with known safety hazards.
Both employers and employees have the right under the OSH Act to have a
representative of their choosing accompany the compliance officer
during an inspection. The opening conference is the appropriate time to
introduce these representatives.
Step 3: Walk-around
Once the opening conference has been conducted and the compliance
officer has examined any records that he wishes to look at prior to
examining the rest of the facility, the walk-around inspection can
begin. The main purpose of the walk-around inspection is for the
compliance officer to identify potential safety and/or health hazards
that are present in the workplace. The employer representative may
suggest a course to take through the facility, but ultimately the
compliance officer determines the route and the duration of the
During the walk-around inspection, the compliance officer will observe
conditions, point out any hazards that are observed, and discuss
possible correction methods for the hazards. The compliance officer may
make video recordings and take photographs and various instrument
readings during the inspection. Employer and employee representatives
are permitted to record similar data if they choose, and it is
generally recommended that they do so whenever possible.
Step 4: Closing Conference
During the closing conference, the compliance officer will brief the
employer and employee representative on conditions observed during the
walk-around. At this time, the compliance officer will inform the
employer and employee representatives of their rights to appeal any
citation that may be issued, as well as resources available to them
As a note, citations will not be issued during or at the end of the
conference. The results of the inspection will be given to the OSHA
Area Director following the visit, and citations or other
notices-of-violation (if necessary) will be issued within six

Planning has begun for the 2013 Region VII Conference to be held in
Kansas City, Missouri at The Westin Crown Center Hotel, May 6-8, 2013.
The conference theme “Searching for Excellence” represents multiple
aspects. First, it ties into Kansas City’s “guardian” of the city. The
Scout is a famous statue by Cyrus E. Dallin in Kansas City, Missouri.
It depicts a Sioux Indian on horseback surveying the landscape. The
statue overlooks the downtown Kansas City area and is a local iconic
figure to say the least.
