Purpose of the Consultation Program
The purpose of the Consultation Program is to reduce the incidence of injury or illness to workers by
enhancing the employer's ability to identify and control safety and health hazards.
Through OSHA's On-site Consultation program, the Agency offers free and confidential advice to small
and medium-sized businesses, with priority given to high-hazard worksites. Consultation services are
provided by the states including State Plan states, to help employers identify and correct workplace hazards.
