Corrective Action Requirements (From OBS Safety Inspection Policy-OBS-SM4):
All deficiencies found during an inspection are to be corrected in a timely manner consistent with the seriousness of the hazard.
Documenting the correction of any deficiencies identified during the inspection is crucial. The inspector will use the original inspection form (this form) to document the correction of any deficiencies that can be immediately controlled or otherwise corrected.
If the deficiency identified during the inspection cannot be corrected by the inspector, corrective action must be formally assigned and documented on this inspection checklist.
