Safety Training Awards Recognition (STAR)

OSHA’s On-Site Consultation Program
This free program offers confidential occupational safety and health services to small and medium U.S. businesses, with priority given to high-hazard workforces. Employers can find out about potential hazards at their workplace, learn how to improve programs that are already in place, and even qualify for a one-year exemption from routine OSHA inspections. Since the program’s sole purpose is assistance, not enforcement, the on-site consultant visits never result in penalties or citations. Click HERE for more information.
