L&I's Division of Occupational Safety & Health (DOSH) Consultation Program offers you no-fee professional advice and assistance in establishing or strengthening your workplace safety and health program.

Employers and employees can benefit from

  • knowledge gained from implementing best practices, having an effective safety program, and staying compliant with WISHA rules;
  • controlling Industrial insurance premiums and preventing hidden costs of workplace injury claims through effective safety programs;
  • a safer and healthier work environment so employees can go home to their loved ones at the end of each work day; and
  • enhanced job performance because the employee is more productive, absent less often, and more likely to avoid short- or long-term disability.

Employer request for consultation

An employer may request assistance for a complete review of the company's safety and health conditions, for information about a specific problem, or both. The consultant will contact you, usually by telephone, to discuss your request and to schedule a time and date for an on-site visit. Contact an L&I consultant near you.

Note: You cannot be fined by a consultant as a result of the consultation. You will be required to correct serious hazards, but you face no financial penalties.
