Inspections, citations, and appeals

Oregon OSHA compliance officers​ inspect workplaces, provide pre-job conferences to employers, and help employers who have received citations​ correct hazards. If an employer receives a citation following an inspection, they have 30 calendar days to file an appeal. Informal conferences resolve about 90 percent of appealed cases.​
