“Proactive Analysis Costs Too Much…”

How many times have you heard something similar to this?  Maybe more like:

“I don’t have time for an audit this week (month/quarter).”

“I can’t pull a supervisor away from production for an audit.”

“We’re already in good shape.  I’m sure we don’t have any big things to catch anymore.”


Take a look at this link.  Most of these problems should have been easy to catch during a good audit program.  The problems found weren’t high-tech, esoteric, hard-to-find problems.  These were the basics, begging to be found during routine audits.  And I’ll guarantee those audits would have been a lot cheaper than the OSHA fines.  Not to mention a safer work environment.
