WorkWISE NH - Safety & Health Consultation Program
WorkWISE NH, provides an on-site consultation that is free and confidential, to eligible small businesses in New Hampshire. Our program can help you identify potential safety and health issues that may arise within your workplace and assist you in developing systematic strategies to protect your employees from such risks. We can also assist you in identifying underlying factors that may have led to these hazards and educate you on the OSHA regulations behind them. Our program aims to aid you in safety and health education and give you the tools to communicate your risk control plans to other employees, management, and or stakeholders.
OSHA On-Site Consultation Programs, like WorkWISE NH, are separate from State and Federal OSHA enforcement. Consultants do not issue citations or penalties. However, employers requesting consultation services are required to correct serious hazards identified within agreed-upon time frames.
A WorkWISE NH visit consists of an opening conference, a walk-through of the worksite and a closing conference. The employer will receive a written report explaining the consultant’s findings and an outline of abatement periods.
Your business benefits in many ways from this free service. Identification and abatement of identified hazards keeps skilled and loyal employees safe and productive. You may experience decreased lost work-time due to injuries, illnesses, and used sick time, as well as lowered workers’ compensation premiums, due to fewer claims. Utilizing these voluntary services will help you to build a positive reputation with not only your employees and staff, but with their families, friends and your surrounding communities.
To be eligible for the WorkWISE NH consultation service, businesses must:
- Be located in New Hampshire.
- Be privately owned.
- Have 250 or fewer employees at one site and fewer than 500 employees in total.
