OSHA CONSULTATION 21(d) (Onsite Consultation Program)

Employers concerned about providing their employees with a safe and healthful workplace can request an on-site visit by one of the OSHA Consultation Program's consultants to determine if safety and health hazards exist. The goal of this program is to help Nebraska employers identify and correct potential safety and health hazards before they become dangerous and expensive problems. At the same time, the Program can help employers avoid costly monetary penalties that can result from work related injuries.

This Department of Labor program provides a no-cost service to Nebraska employers with one or more employees. This service is not available to municipal, county, state or federal agencies or organizations. At the employer's request, trained consultants inspect worksites to identify safety and health hazards. The service provided to employers can include:
  • Walk-through Safety and Health Survey
  • 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.

To obtain more information or schedule a consultation, you may contact Eldon Diedrichs, Program Manager at the Lincoln office at 402-471-4717, complete the consultation form on-line, or copy, fill out, and mail the brochure in the PDF below or write to:
