According to the fact sheet, OSHA under sequestration may conduct roughly 1,200 fewer inspections of the nation's workplaces, or about 1% of total safety and health inspections conducted by government. In 2011, OSHA conducted 40,648 inspections, and state OSHA agencies conducted over 52,000 inspections.

Sequestration would also reduce compliance assistance to employers from government agencies, leaving employers to find other resources to help them comply with OSHA regulations. Sequestration would have no impact on the obligations of employers to comply with OSHA rules.
