OSHA Consultation Program Fact Sheet
Using a free consultation service funded by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), employers can find out about potential hazards at their worksites, improve their occupational safety and health management systems, and even qualify for a one-year exemption from routine OSHA inspection.
The service is delivered by state governments using well-trained professional staff. Consultations take place on-site, though limited services away from the worksite are available. However, consultations cannot take place during an enforcement inspection, and may not take place until citations, if any, have been issued and become final orders.
Primarily targeted for smaller, high-hazard businesses, OSHA’s safety and health consultation program is completely separate from the OSHA inspection effort. In addition, no citations are issued or penalties proposed.
Confidentiality will be strictly maintained during the consultation process. The consultant will only report hazard information to OSHA if the employer fails to correct an imminent danger or serious hazards.
The employer’s only obligation will be to commit to correcting serious job safety and health hazards – a commitment which is expected to be made prior to the actual visit and carried out in a timely manner.
