The Nebraska On-Site Safety and Health Consultation Program assists employers in providing their employees with a safe and healthy workplace by helping to identify and correct safety and health hazards in general industry and construction before they become dangerous and expensive problems.
The program is available to any business that has less than 250 employees on-site and 500 nationwide. We are unable to provide services to municipal, county, state or federal organizations. Services are provided through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and administered through the Nebraska Department of Labor On-Site Safety and Health Consultation Program at no cost to the business requesting consultation services.
The service provided to employers can include:
- Walk-through Safety and Health Survey (Mock OSHA Inspection)
- Safety and Health Program Assessment
- Employer-Employee Training
- Ventilation System Evaluation
- Electrical Systems and Equipment Evaluation
- Review of Machine Guarding
- Noise Measurements
- Air Sampling and Analysis
- Assistance with Personal Protective Equipment
- Comprehensive Written Reports
- Technical Assistance
- Exemption from Routine OSHA Inspections
Upon completion of the visit, program staff will identify hazards in your business and supply written reports of their findings including recommendations on how to reduce or eliminate the hazards. Corrective action on serious and imminent hazards is required as part of the program. The employer and consultant set and agree to time lines for correction of the serious hazards. The employer will be asked to confirm that corrective action has been taken. The Department of Labor will follow through with employers seeking an exemption from routine OSHA inspections.
