Limited service assistance:

  • Safety, which includes fire protection, emergency action, electrical, machine guarding, confined space, material handling, lockout tagout, PPE, flammable and combustible storage, powered industrial equipment(forklift, aerial lifts, etc),and other areas;
  • Health, which includes chemical exposures, noise, ventilations, air contaminants, or blood borne pathogens, and other areas;

Full-service assistance is for companies that want help in meeting OSHA’s requirements for the entire facility. The Oklahoma OSHA Consultation program will: 1) identify physical hazards throughout the facility; 2) evaluate all technical programs; and 3) review the safety and health program management. Recommendations will be made on how to correct physical hazards and improve both the technical programs and the safety and health management system.

For all types of assistance, the Oklahoma OSHA consultant must use the same identification and classification procedures as an OSHA compliance officer would. The employer must agree beforehand to correct all hazards identified by the consultant and provide written verification of the actions taken to correct serious hazards within a reasonable time frame.
