Concerned that you’re not doing enough to keep your employees safe from a potential chemical explosion on the sales floor or the stock room? Never fear. There are a variety of safety inspectors out there who can help maximize your store’s safety routines and stop chemical accidents before they start.
OSHA On-Site Consultants: These representatives are available to come to a business and conduct a free health and safety consultation. But don’t worry: You won’t be cited or fined for any infractions an inspector finds in the store or warehouse. OSHA only requires that companies fix any discovered hazards in a timely manner. You can find out more by entering "Free On-Site Consultation” in the search bar at OSHA.gov.
Fire Marshalls: The local FD is just as anxious to prevent fires in your store as you are. So, to reduce the risk of explosions, you can call your local fire marshal to inspect your store for any type of potential fire hazards.
City Building Inspectors: Chemical regulations sometimes vary from city to city and state to state. That’s why checking in with your local building inspector is one of the best ways to find out what local or state ordinances you need to follow in order to run a safe business.
