Call OSHA? What? Yes! I tell all breweries starting out to call OSHA. OSHA offers free and confidential on-site consultation in all states across the country for small businesses. On-site consultation services are separate from enforcement and do not result in penalties or citations. However, businesses are required to correct serious job safety and health hazards which is agreed upon prior to consultation.
Using OSHA’s consultation service lowers injury and illness rates, ultimately saving both employers and employees. So go ahead and pick up the phone.
