Each year, OSHA conduct thousands of inspections, including hundreds in the foundry industry — resulting in millions of dollars in fines.  In the state of Michigan alone, over 10 foundries had wall-to-all inspections from March to October 2021.  OSHA fines are increased annually based on cost of living adjustments  Beginning Jan. 15, 2022, OSHA’s maximum penalties for serious and other-than-serious violations will increase from $13,653 per violation to $14,502 per violation. The maximum penalty for willful or repeated violations will increase from $136,532 per violation to $145,027 per violation. More than even ensure your foundry is inspection-ready

  • Understanding the 3 stages of the inspection process: The opening conference, the inspection tour, and the closing conference
  • The importance of developing a pre-inspection plan and process
  • Items that may prompt an inspection and how you can prepare in advance
