Why Use a Third Party Consultant?

The most important aspect of the OSHA inspection process is the citation itself. Getting a citation deleted or reclassified is the main goal in any informal conference. If you engage a qualified third party consulting company they may help you be better positioned to successfully petition for citation deletion and reclassification. When the citation is deleted, the fine becomes zero

If you cannot successfully petition for deletion or reclassification of a citation, you may still petition for a reduction in the fine. If you engage a qualified third party consulting company, it gives evidence to OSHA of your company’s commitment to improving safety. OSHA may give consideration to employers who demonstrate their commitment to safety by hiring a qualified safety company. The purpose of OSHA fines is not punitive, but to motivate the employer to put money into safety. The reduction in OSHA fines may be as much or more than 60% when the consultation plan of the qualified third party consultant is effectively communicated to OSHA.

OSHA Standards do change, and at any point in time there could be one or more standards under review by industry stakeholders and OSHA. Qualified safety companies have staff that stay abreast of changing OSHA regulations and best practices.

Oftentimes business contracts will require a third party safety consultant. This could either be to fill a need for an objective auditor, or to supply a full or part-time safety consultant on site during a project.

A third party safety consultant can help reduce overhead costs in three ways.
By hiring a qualified safety consultant you will not need to increase staff which results in increased overhead costs. Additionally, by using OccuMed’s safety consultants, you are engaging a team of safety consultants who specialize in OSHA compliance across many industries and experiences.
A comprehensive approach to loss control services can help your business limit the total cost of risk and improve your bottom line. OccuMed will work with you to develop or refine your health and safety plans, provide OSHA compliance assistance and training to your staff to mitigate areas of risk. 
OccuMed can work with you to lower your experience modification rate (EMR). By analyzing injury and incident trends and implementing corrective and preventive actions, we can reduce your EMR thereby lowering your workers’ compensation costs.

Risk assessments

OccuMed of New England offers an initial assessment to evaluate the level of compliance with OSHA, as well as other regulatory agencies, for companies in our primary service areas. The purpose of the initial assessment is to provide hazard identification, risk analysis and evaluation. We provide you the insight needed to develop and implement critical safety management system control tools, to include; operational and contractual risk reduction techniques and needs assessments, requirements and assumptions analysis, interface controls and cost analysis. 

Today’s complex work environment is challenged with managing safety performance by event and correction (relatively), rather than assessment and prevention (proactively). A proactive risk assessment of your company’s safety management systems can assist you as an employer, as well as your workforce in achieving the desired results of an OSHA complaint workplace; while giving your management team and labor force the proper perspective needed to reduce losses while increasing productivity. 

Without verification through effective risk performance assessments and programs, it is not a sure bet that your safety processes are working as they should. Significant safety performance vulnerabilities may exist that can affect disciplined operations throughout your organization.
