STEP 1 - CALL: As an owner or manager of a small business, call 1-800-947-0553, (or 608-226-5240 for an industrial hygiene focused request), e-mail, or send a letter to the consultation program.
STEP 2 - SCHEDULE: A consultant will call you to schedule a consultation visit at your convenience. First priority is given to workplaces where employees are currently experiencing illnesses. Priority is also given to small employers in high hazard industries.
STEP 3 - ONSITE VISIT: The consultant will arrive at your workplace for the on-site visit consisting of:
STEP 4 - MONITORING RESULTS: If industrial hygiene monitoring was conducted, the consultant will provide you with the monitoring results by fax, email or letter.
STEP 5 - REPORT: The consultant will evaluate all of the information and provide you with a written report detailing the findings and recommendations, including the action plan that you discussed during the closing conference.
STEP 6 - CORRECTION OF HAZARDS: You correct all of the serious hazards found within the agreed upon abatement schedule. If needed, extensions in time may be granted upon written request. Hazard abatement is required so that each consultation visit achieves its objective: effective employee protection.
ADDITIONAL VISITS: A followup visit may be scheduled to provide abatement assistance or to conduct additional monitoring to verify abatement if needed.
