The idea is to avoid being fined by OSHA, and being further investigated in areas other then electrical at same time. Those other areas need addressed as well - but they would likely prefer consultants and not OSHA to point out those issues, which is why they hire them.
I am not sure the OP would have started this thread if the situation is as you have mentioned.
