Consultation​

How It Works

The function of UOSH Consultation is to help identify safety and health hazards in the workplace and provide recommendations for correction. Our goal is to educate and assist employers and their employees in promoting safety and health in the workplace to prevent injuries and illnesses. UOSH Consultation helps accomplish this without issuing citations or penalties.

Our staff of experienced professional safety and industrial hygiene (health) consultants will assess your safety and health program. This includes identification of safety and health hazards in your workplace with recommendations to reduce or eliminate hazards, meet current safety and health regulations and develop an ongoing, effective safety and health management system. We provide confidential, comprehensive written reports detailing our findings and recommendations. At your request, we will conduct follow-up visits as needed to provide safety and health training for your workers. You decide the scope and extent of the safety and health services provided.

Prevention is Key

  • How safe is your workplace?
  • Where do you look for the latest safety and health information?
  • What types of measures are you taking to ensure that your workers remain healthy and productive?
