When to Use
In order to better prepare for an OSHA inspector, it is a good idea to do a safety self-inspection and audit. Complete self-inspection and audits depend in large part on specific workplaces.

However, the following safety considerations are a good way to start thinking about the process and to ensure any created checklist covers the most important areas of evaluation.
