Preparing for an OSHA Inspection

Published by Alliance of Automotive Service Providers

Automotive repair shops, both collision and mechanical, are on Minnesota OSHA's list of facilities for programmed inspections. That means OSHA may show up unannounced. This session presents the most frequently-cited and most commonly-found OSHA violations in automotive repair facilities. Viewers are advised what to do if OSHA shows up, how to prepare ahead of time, what to do during an inspection and how to identify potential problem areas in their own place of business. AWAIR programs and GHS are explained.

Note: The majority of the program content pertains to general OSHA requirements that apply to automotive repair shops throughout the United States. However, this program was produced by AASP-MN and developed for Minnesota, which has a state-run OSHA program. Regulations may vary, based on the state of residence. Regulations may have changed since the time of original recording.

The information provided in this program was intended to provide an overview of OSHA standards at the time of the recording. It is not intended as legal advice; we recommend you consult a professional to ensure the information is applicable to your facility. No warranty, expressed or implied, is made that the information presented is accurate beyond the date of the original presentation or suitable or adequate for your application.
