The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 gives OSHA the authority to do unannounced inspections.  When violations are found for failure to comply with OSHA standards, OSHA has the authority to cite and fine companies.The fines vary according to the gravity of the penalty. 

Therefore, companies that prepare and know what to expect and how to respond when OSHA shows up for an unannounced inspection will fare better than those companies who are unprepared.

In addition, the better prepared a company is for understanding the scope of OSHA inspections, based on the reason for the inspection, the better it will be at planning and preparing for who needs to be involved in the inspection process. 

Also, knowing that OSHA has the authority to raise fines for the first time in years, all companies want to understand the financial impact fines will have as the result of the inspection process.
