“Will Your Campus Be Ready When OSHA Comes Calling?”
Tuesday, February 12, 2019 | 2:00 PM ET
Higher Education campuses are not immune to federal OSHA's reviews and penalties. Many campuses have recently faced OSHA citations and fines for a range of issues, often for common causes such as unmarked exits and asbestos. Facilities and procurement teams alike need to be aware of the common risks on campus and the potential OSHA remediation process should a violation be found. Procurement in particular takes a leading role in setting campuses up for safety and positive OSHA reviews. All campus teams can take away three key lessons about OSHA compliance: procurement, vendor selection, and learning must all play a role in preparing for ongoing OSHA reviews.
· Procurement has a primary role in creating a process and supply chain that focuses on safety and OSHA compliance, including during vendor selection
· Vendors should be reviewed for past OSHA compliance and their work should be audited to ensure it complies with all applicable regulations
· Continuous education is critical to ensure that key procurement and facilities roles know the latest policies and can apply OSHA-readiness day to day
