PA OSHA Consultation

IUP's Safety Sciences Department is the officially designated agency in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for OSHA consultation services. Since 1983, IUP OSHA Consultation Program provides FREE occupational and health consultative services made available through federal regulations.

The program is designed to assist private-sector employers in the Commonwealth in understanding and voluntarily complying with applicable safety/health regulations enforced by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Our consultants, who are professors in the IUP Safety Sciences department, will:

  • Help employers recognize workplace hazards
  • Provide free air monitoring for various contaminants as well as noise monitoring.
  • Assist employers in developing and maintaining effective safety and health management programs
  • Identify no-cost resources through the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry's Bureau of Workers Compensation should employers need further compliance training or safety committee assistance
  • Provide health and safety “train-the-trainer” training for employers
  • And more.

Consultants from IUP do not issue citations or propose penalties for violations of OSHA standards. Instead, our faculty members will assist you no cost to improve your safety and health programs. Recommendations are 100% confidential, and never shared with OSHA enforcement.
