If you get a knock at your door and open it to find a DoL inspector, it could mean serious problems for your company.

If the inspector finds out you haven't complied with health and safety laws he'll charge you with serious penalties.

Luckily, avoiding these penalties is easy.

All you need to do is prepare these four things before he arrives at your door...
