Occupational Health & Safety Program Development and Auditing

NES has assisted hundreds of clients in developing or maintaining industrial hygiene and occupational health and safety programs to comply with OSHA regulations as well as reduce the number of workplace accidents and workers’ compensation claims. NES can develop new occupational health and safety programs or can audit and/or revise clients’ existing programs to comply with current regulations and workplace conditions and practices. Program development will often involve an on-site visit, client interview, and review of any existing documents to determine client needs based on site conditions and client operations. NES also develops and presents customized training programs to educate employees on the elements of the health and safety plans as well as to satisfy regulatory requirements.

NES can provide assistance with the implementation of elements within occupational health and safety programs, such as performing qualitative or quantitative respirator fit testing. NES also develops site-specific health and safety plans for individual projects addressing specific hazards regulated under the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard (29 CFR 1910.120) such as hazardous waste construction and/or remediation projects.

NES has developed and maintained numerous occupational health and safety programs for city and county agencies as well as private companies throughout California. These clients are involved in diverse operations with unique hazards, such as pyrotechnic manufacturers, ballistic testing companies, wineries, analytical laboratories, and wastewater treatment plants.
