If he finds anything wrong in your company's health and safety procedures, he'll charge you fines that could go into the thousands and cause your company serious financial loses. That's why you have to do everything you can to prevent this.

That's where health and safety inspections play a useful roll.

Read on to find out how they could save your company from these dreaded DoL penalties...

- Weak safety procedures;
- Non-compliant employees; and
