Newfield LogoLiberty Safe has had the opportunity to work with OSHA Consulting. By our invitation OSHA consulting came in to partner with us in realigning our safety culture and in addressing any safety concerns that might arise. James E. Johnston helped us on two different occasions. Each occasion was very positive, he was very quick Read more >>

to point out what we are doing right and things we might need to improve. He reviewed with us the OSHA standards and the interpretation of these standards. Liberty Safe has noticed a positive atmosphere and a willingness to comply by all employees. We would recommend this service to all companies in Utah. We would also like thank Utah OSHA Consulting for giving us their time and service to help all of us improve and make Liberty Safe a safer and much better place to work.

municipal markets. We pride ourselves on the best pump selection, pricing, premium repair, and customer service. Our sales engineers are well trained in helping you select the right pump for your application.

Our motto is:

"SAFETY"
ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE

Upon starting our business we tried to create our own safety manual, which proved to be extremely difficult. Ultimately we turned to a safety service company to make one for us, which was a great improvement over what we had. After going through those manuals we noticed there were a lot of issues that still needed attention. FlowQuip decided to contact OSHA and participate in the Voluntary Protection Program.

“Some people may think you actually called OSHA into your shop?” Let me tell you it was painless. They were very helpful in the issues that we had, while finding a few that we were not aware of.

FlowQuip has since corrected the issues that were brought to our attention during the VPP consultation, while implementing them into our safety program.

FlowQuip is very grateful for the VPP and OSHA.

Thanks,

Newfield LogoOur company is developing a crude oil upgrading facility in the Uinta Basin. Before our consultation with Lawnie Nebeker, Read more >>

OSHA Consultation Services, I always felt that we were doing things right if OSHA was not involved or around our job site. I heard about OSHA's free consultation service, however, and thought, “if it is true, this service would benefit our company as it would be valuable to have another set of trained eyes focused on safety and possible hazards."

We had a great experience. In our opinion, this really is a valuable independent view and assessment. We felt great about our consultation, which led us to a better understanding of how to prevent workplace injuries and suggested practical ways to improve our safety program. The icing on the cake is that this OSHA consulting service is free! OSHA now feels like a valued partner rather than "the enforcer".

In sum, OSHA Consultation Services assisted us to reduce risk, increase employee participation, and limit liability. What business wouldn't want a partner like that?

Thank you,

Newfiled LogoAfter meeting several Utah OSHA officers in a Wyoming, Oil & Gas seminar, we made it a point to invite Utah OSHA Consultation to our oil field. It was one of the most useful (FREE!) 3rd party audits we've ever experienced or utilized. This service usually costs a pretty penny & Utah OSHA consultation provided this service to us for free. They recommended a few changes to our facility, set up ...      Read more >>

and evaluated some processes, and recommended a few changes. These recommendations were ideas that we were blind to until they helped us realize how much clearer and easier we could design our systems.

These are very underutilized services. We wish we would have asked them to visit earlier.

Thank you Utah OSHA Consultation.

Universal Industrial Sales LogoWe have had visits from both Mark LeBlanc and Lawnie Nebeker of Utah OSHA Consultation this past year. The visits included help with our record keeping procedures for the 300 Logs and help with forms for our lock out tag out program. In addition both Mark & Lawnie walked through our main fab shop and our galvanizing plant and gave helpful recommendations for improving the health and safety of our workers.      Read more >>

I would commend Utah OSHA Consultation to any business who wants to improve the safety and health programs for their employees.

Frontier Scientific LogoWe are a chemical manufacturing company located in northern Utah. We've been using UOSH consultation since 2002. Our first consultation resulted in correcting over 20 serious workplace hazards that would have injured our chemical production staff.

Over the years we've had UOSH come and perform air monitoring of our labs. This service is vital to an OSHA approved respiratory program; essentially preventing airborne chemical exposures in the lab.      Read more >>

There are no repercussions from a UOSH consultation visit. No fines or penalties are issued. This free service is similar to hiring an expensive consultant to inspect your work site. Many companies pay for this type of an inspection and then pay again to correct the deficiencies. Why pay at all !?

Concerning OSHA regulations, UOSH consultation is the one department we contact to get the most accurate up-to-date information. The consultation personnel have always been helpful and quick to respond.

Please consider UOSH consultation services the next time you are perplexed with a safety problem. You'll get the best information at no cost to you. You’ll prevent an accident and perhaps, save a life!

Best regards,

PMI LogoAfter a small incident at our shop we decided to invite OSHA CONSULTATION in to help us out. We wanted to make sure our company was OSHA compliant and a safe place for our employees to feel and be.

David W. Bloomfield from OSHA CONSULTATION came in and was very nice and friendly. He made our first impression of them a good one. He took time to walk through our shop and explain to us the things that we needed to improve and      Read more >>

also pointed out some good things that we had already implemented.

Through the next couple of months, I worked closely with Dave to complete and improve those items that needed improving. It was quite the process, but Dave was always there if I needed him and even brainstormed some ideas with me when needed. After the trials, and some hard work, we can now say that our shop is OSHA compliant. We feel great about our accomplishment and owe our success to OSHA CONSULTATION and for all their assistance.

Thank you!

CRCA LogoWe are a small business that opened in May 2012 and in June we had our OSHA small business consultation. We wanted to get started on the right foot and not knowing all the rules and regulations this visit was very helpful! Clark was our consultant and he was helpful from the first time we talked on the phone. Our business is small enough that we are not required by law to have a Safety and Health Plan but we decided to create one any way.      Read more >>

Prior to the consultation he sent me a template that was directed towards our type of business. I modified it to fit our needs and after the consultation he reviewed it and made great suggestions. Clark was a pleasure to host at our business. He provided us with additional hard copy materials to complete worker training. He had a genuine interest in the services that we were providing and gave appropriate feedback as we walked through the business discussing safety and health issues related to our facility. He has offered to come for a follow up visit once we have had time to settle in.

It was great to have someone supportive and motivated to help us get started on the right foot.

Cornerstone Concrete LogoTo Whom It May Concern,
I wanted to write and thank you for your recent help with Safety on our project. Your staff was so helpful in assisting us through some needed training and establishing increased awareness of safety with our people. We value our employees and want to provide them with the safest of work environments. Your willingness to come to our worksites and to provide an extra set of eyes     Read more >>

to point out potential risks was extremely valuable.

As an employer, I appreciate the consulting aspect of your agency. It removes the stigma that OSHA typically brings to a worksite.

We plan to continue to invite your agency to partner with us in providing a safe environment for our most valued asset — our people.

Sincerely,

Superior Service Transport LogoDear Utah OSHA:
As a safety director for many years, I have frequently taken the opportunity to utilize your consultation services. It has always been a very positive and productive experience for me and my employees. So, when in September of 2011 we moved into a new warehouse, it was only natural that I call on OSHA consultation to help me with the initial safety walk-through. As usual, I received a great deal of information and guidance from your group ...     Read more >>

that was critical to assuring the safest possible working environment for my employees.

David Bloomfield was the primary agent I worked with and found him to be a wealth of experience and knowledge. My time with David saved me many hours of research and provided me with the opportunity to receive virtually immediate feedback on the many questions I had. David also provided a valuable review of the safety and health programs I had generated, often times identifying areas where I could save time and money in my compliance efforts.

For anyone who is genuinely concerned with improving their safety and compliance environment or their knowledge of OSHA regulations I highly recommend that they contact Utah OSHA consultation division. Beyond saving time and money, it is comforting to know that the answers and help a person receives from OSHA consultation are the most accurate and timely possible.

To those who would worry about bringing OSHA into their operations I would say that OSHA consultation recognizes the efforts of a business to improve and understands the needs of that business to operate effectively. They earnestly seek to partnership with businesses to help them to be compliant as economically and effectively as possible. Their mission is to help, not to cite.

Many thanks again for the valuable help that David Bloomfield and the OSHA consultation division provided to me as we expanded our operations in Salt Lake.

Sincerely,
Mark L Morris
Safety Director – Superior Service Transport


Utah County Surgical Associates LogoTo Whom It May Concern:

Earlier this year our Practice Administrator requested that I take whatever steps necessary to be sure our Practice was OSHA compliant.

First, I looked on the Internet for OSHA services and found such a mixed bag of Information that it wasn't really helpful. So, I called our Practice Medical Insurance Agency and got a number from them to call at the Utah Labor Commission.     Read more >>

Once I made contact with a consultant there, things became much easier. Make no mistake, there may be a lot of work for you to do to become OSHA compliant, but it can be done much more efficiently with a consultant. Ours furnished sample documents, a complete walk-through of our facility to evaluate our current status, many encouraging and instructive phone calls and lots of help by e-mail.

Since there is now an OSHA Referral Service in place, I would urge you to take advantage of all they can do for you!

To Whom It May Concern:
As the Safety Director at Futura Industries, it is my pleasure to recommend the On-site Consultation Program's Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).

As a SHARP certified company for 10 years, Futura Industries can attest to the many benefits of participating in this innovative program. The On-site Consultation Program's consultants are cordial and clearly communicate      Read more >>

the program's requirements and expectations. They are very helpful with identifying opportunities for improvement as well as finding solutions. They will also help you to understand the standards and will providing training when requested. They truly want your business to succeed in preventing injuries and illnesses and will assist as needed to make that happen.

The SHARP program has my highest recommendation, and I am happy to furnish more details if you would like additional information.

OSHA Publication Department
Kate McNeil
In late April of this year we (Cardalls Insulation) requested the assistance of OSHA's advisory department. We were growing rapidly      Read more >>

and our facility was in need of some safety modifications. Lawnie Nebeker , industrial hygienist consultant with the Utah labor commission came to our facility and worked with us to determine what we needed to improve safety at our facility.

Several areas of concern were identified and Lawnie helped us with information of how to bring our place of business into full OSHA compliance.

We were given several months to work on our safety improvements and many times during that time I would call the labor commissions and Lawnie would offer the needed solutions over the phone.

In summary: Had we just proceeded with out professional assistance on our facility safety make¬over I believe it would have been more costly and probably not totally compliant. It was a good experience for our Company and extremely informative. We see OSHA is a different light these days and plan to use their various training programs in the future.

Sandy City Public Works LogoTo whom it may concern:
The Sandy City Public Works Department currently has an outstanding safety program. As a matter of fact, the department has gone over 600,000 hours since its last lost time workplace injury. Since we have been very successful, most people would think that a safety inspection from an outside entity would be a waste of time. On the contrary, our greatest fear is that a sense of complacency would develop and bad habits would be brought into the workplace. Since no person or organization is perfect,      Read more >>

we wanted to have an inspection of our workplace to confirm that we were doing things right and to correct those problems that may have been overlooked by supervisors. The Utah OSHA Public Sector Consultation Service proved to be the perfect solution for our concerns. After an initial meeting with the consultant and supervisory staff, a thorough inspection of the entire workplace ensued. The consultant was friendly and fair. She clearly identified problems and helped supervisors understand how to safely resolve the issue. This free service will continue to help Sandy City Public Works protect our employees and keep our safety costs low.

Dunford Bakers LogoOSHA Consultation: Kate McNeil
We have been working with OSHA Consultation for the last three years. Catherine Van Duser has been very thorough and helpful, but most of all very easy to work with. It has been advantageous to have someone like Catherine looking at possible safety issues that we walk by everyday. We at Dunford have learned that OSHA is there to help train and identify hazards, and that they want to be of help every step of the way.      Read more >>

Dunford was nominated to receive a Worker Compensation Fund 2011 Safety Award. Out of 20,000 WCF policy holders we were one on the top 54 companies selected for showing exemplary safety culture. This would not have happened without the help of OSHA and WCF. I would recommend working with OSHA on any level. They are not only helpful and informative, but also give you time and advice on how to fix the problems. We are already looking forward to our next OSHA consultation.

Remember; OSHA helps make it safe for all employees.

Sincerely,
Dennis Dahle
