Workplace Safety Completing the Quarterly Safety Inspection Checklist
Oregon Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) OSHA requires that regular safety inspections and occasional audits be performed to make sure the workplace remains free of hazards that could cause injury or illness.
What is an inspection? The inspection examines conditions in the workplace to identify hazards. Inspections are performed each quarter in October, January, April and July. An audit is then performed to evaluate how well the department is controlling hazards. The audit is performed by the safety committee to ensure continuous improvement.
Who completes the Checklist? A checklist is required to be completed in each kitchen. Each Lead (or sub-lead) is required to complete the Quarterly Safety Inspection Checklist.
