Posted January 4, 2018 -

As part of our efforts to keep you informed of new OSHA resources, we want to let you know that the agency updated it’s drop-in article focusing on OSHA’s On-Site Consultation Program.

The article provides an overview of the program, including details on how employers can find out about potential hazards at their worksites, improve their occupational safety and health management system, and qualify for an exemption from scheduled OSHA enforcement inspections when they request assistance from the agency’s free, confidential, and voluntary On-Site Consultation Program.  OSHA’s consultation service is available through state agencies or universities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and several U.S. Territories. The highly trained safety and occupational health professionals work with employers to identify workplace hazards, provide advice on compliance with OSHA standards, and assist in establishing workplace safety and health management programs.

Please share the attached article with your members and downstream stakeholders, for possible inclusion in membership e-newsletters and publications, and for posting to organizational websites, as appropriate. 

Thanks,
Doug Kalinowski, Director
Directorate of Cooperative and State Programs
