Occupational Safety & Health On-Site Consultation Program

Available through the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development (LWD), employers can find out about potential hazards at their worksites, improve their occupational safety and health management systems, and qualify for a one-year exemption. The service is delivered by the LWD using trained safety and health professionals. Consultations take place on-site, though limited services away from the worksite are available. Primarily targeted for businesses with fewer than 250 employees, this safety and health consultation program is completely separate from the OSHA inspection effort. No citations are issued or penalties proposed.
