About 13,000 U.S. employers recently received letters alerting them that their companies' injury and illness rates are "significantly higher" than national averages. They were warned to shape up. The letters don't mean an automatic inspection, but they do increase your odds.
If you didn't receive such a letter, don't slack off on safety. All it takes is one employee complaint or a major accident to trigger an OSHA inspection.
