Interested in providing a safe workplace for you and your workers? The Division of Labor Standards’ On-Site Health and Safety Consultation program can provide safety and health consultants for OSHA-type “mock” inspections for your workplace at no cost and without assessing fines or penalties. Consultants also can provide training and assistance in the preparation of site-specific written safety and health programs.
The employer always sets the scope of the visit, so the consultation can include the entire workplace or it can be limited to a specific area or phase of the workplace. The only obligation is to correct the hazards identified by the consultant.
During the walk through, the safety and health consultant will identify and discuss any potential hazards and suggest the best and most cost - effective solutions. Consultants also can provide training and assistance in the preparation of site-specific written safety and health programs.
For companies who have excellent safety and health management programs, the On-site Consultation Program administers the Safety and Health Recognition Program (SHARP) Participants in SHARP are eligible to receive up to a 3 year exemption from OSHA programmed inspections
