What Happens If Violations Are Found During An Inspection?

For each violation found during an inspection, the inspector will discuss with the employer the nature of the violation, possible abatement measures to correct the condition, and the time frame for completing abatement measures.

If citations are issued, the citation or a copy of the citation must be posted at or near the place of the violation for 3 working days or until the violation is corrected, whichever is longer. If the employer does not wish to contest the citation and penalty, the employer must correct the condition by the date set in the citation, notifying the MOSH in writing that the cited condition has been corrected and pay the penalty, if one is proposed.

If the employer disagrees with the citation and/or penalty, the first step is to file a notice of contest with the Assistant Commissioner within 15 working days.
