As An Employer, Must I Fix All Identified Hazards And How Is It Verified?

The employer is obligated to correct all serious hazards found by the consultant within a reasonable period of time. Extensions are granted if a hardship is identified and if the employer is providing interim protection from the hazard for employees. For regular consultation visits, a statement of assurance of correction for each hazard is acceptable. For special program consultations a follow­up visit is usually conducted to verify the correction of hazards.
