OSHA's free On-site Consultation Program helps Nevada manufacturer achieve excellence in workplace safety and health
Personnel from Nevada's Safety Consultation and Training Section present representatives from EE Technologies Inc. with a SHARP recognition certificate.
EE Technologies Inc., an electronic component manufacturer in Reno, Nev., reached out to OSHA's free On-site Consultation Program after a programmed inspection as part of a National Emphasis Program on lead. The company uses lead to solder parts.
Recognizing that safety and health is an integral aspect of providing customer service to its partners, EET looked for ways to make the workplace better through regular safety committee meetings, inspections, training and awareness programs. Worker feedback was incorporated into the company’s safety and health management program. The company also passed regular safety and health assessments conducted by Nevada's Safety Consultation and Training Section. This commitment to continuous improvement led to EET attaining acceptance into OSHA's Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program in August 2013.

On-site Consultation services are separate from enforcement and do not result in penalties or citations. Consultants from state agencies or universities work with small business employers to identify workplace hazards, provide advice on compliance with OSHA standards, and assist in establishing injury and illness prevention programs.
