Every year, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspects workplaces around the country for safety and occupational hazards. In 2017 alone, OSHA conducted 32,408 inspections – more than half of which were unprogrammed inspections.

There are six reasons OSHA might come knocking on the door. They are (in order of priority):

  1. imminent danger situations;
  2. severe injuries and illnesses;
  3. worker complaints;
  4. referrals;
  5. targeted inspections; and
  6. follow-up inspections.
