Have you ever wondered how OSHA Compliance Officers do what they do on a site inspection? What are the procedures they are to follow to conduct a site safety inspection for a construction project? This week @ericsafetyman has posted several links to several OSHA Field Manuals. See below to learn more to learn.

The following was originally posted on the SafetyResourcesBlog site by: ericsafety75

“OSHA publishes their field manuals, plus items called ‘CPL’s.’  CPL (short for ‘compliance’) documents are the actual guidelines that OSHA uses when performing inspections.  No, really.

Some of these are very long and involved, but if you want to know what OSHA will look for on your job, look here.  I have no posted all of them, but here is a sample.  To get the rest, go to https://www.osha.gov and do a search for “CPL.”
