On-site OSHA Compliance Assessments

OSHA inspections are generally conducted without notice, so being prepared is your key to success. Bay West Certified Safety Professionals provide detailed assessments of both your compliance documentation (OSHA Logs, Training, and policies) along with executing onsite facility walk throughs to identify potential citations. That said, our Safety Professionals will collaborate with you to successfully resolve identified compliance concerns thus reducing your company’s risk profile for the unexpected OSHA Enforcement inspection.

Above and beyond compliance

Not just a consultant...a partner. We want to team with our clients to create a safety culture that aligns with your company values and vision. Reduced injuries, increased productivity, employee retention. It all starts with safety. Safety means efficiency. Efficiency means cost savings for your company.

Written Programs

OSHA requires a written program for several safety topics. A well written program should function as a tool to guide decisions and drive actions. Our experienced Certified Safety Professionals can help write, review, and update your written programs to improve performance.

Safety Gap Analysis

Our experienced safety professionals can help you identify gaps in your OSHA compliance efforts that you may have over looked or didn't know about.

Industrial Hygiene Exposure Assessments

Using assessment checklists, modeling tools, reviewing process operations and materials involved, we can develop an exposure assessment that can be used to prioritize the installation of controls and scheduling industrial hygiene sampling.

Industrial Hygiene Exposure Monitoring

This can involve collecting air samples from the worker's breathing zone during work activities to see if exposure levels exceed recommend exposure limits. Sometimes portable real-time monitors are attached to a worker to take measurements during the work activity. The end goal is to understand the risk of exposure to the worker

Indoor Air Quality Evaluation

IAQ evaluations can include a review of building HVAC system operations, measuring IAQ parameters, sampling for mold, monitor for dust and ultra-fine particles, inspecting for water intrusion.

Respirator Fit Testing

We use the PortaCount respirator fit tester to ensure the respirator mask provides a proper seal to the user's face. All our consultants have attended TSI PortaCount Academy and are certified to fit test with the PortaCount.
