INSPECTIONS: As previously discussed, the local fire department and local municipality inspectors for building, electrical and plumbing may examine your facility - including spray booths, storage areas, emergency lighting, sprinkler systems and any number of aspects concerned with the safe operation of your business. Maintaining these structures and support functions is an absolute necessity. z The state and/or local agencies may review your permits, emissions and waste generation protocols. z OSHA can inspect with respect to worker safety including hazardous chemicals exposures, training, housekeeping and right to know issues. It is in every facility's best interest to run a safe and compliant operation. This summary is not intended to be all inclusive as protocols vary widely among localities. The key for an efficient operation is to maintain lines of communication with regulating authorities, to know where to find regulations that impact your operations and to understand them. The final rule as always… "When in doubt, consult with the appropriate authorities."
