Today is National Compliance Officer Day. We use this day to recognize the special tasks compliance officers perform. Compliance officers are a special group with the duty of ensuring an ethical and safe environment for workplaces across the country. A compliance officer ensures a company complies with the outside regulatory and legal requirements. Compliance officers also work with management and staff to identify and manage regulatory risks.
Without compliance officers, companies may fail to stay compliant which may cause businesses to receive OSHA citations or shut down.
