5208.0040 SAFETY SURVEYS.

The safety and health committees for any employer that has a workers' compensation insurance experience modification factor of 1.4 or greater or has a workers' compensation premium rate of $30 or more per $100 of payroll assigned to the greatest portion of the payroll for the employer shall conduct workplace safety and health surveys at each of the employer's workplaces at least quarterly. The safety and health committees of all other employers shall conduct workplace safety and health inspections as frequently as the committee considers necessary. On the request of a member of a safety and health committee, the commissioner of the Department of Labor and Industry shall order the employer to have surveys conducted more frequently if the commissioner determines that to do so would result in a substantially safer workplace. The employer shall keep a record of all hazards identified by and recommendations made by the safety and health committee.
