As a business owner, you’re responsible for ensuring a safe workplace. OSHA standards exist to help you achieve that goal – but there are more than 300 standards for the general industry alone. Businesses in higher-risk industries like construction and agriculture face even stricter regulations.
Do you need OSHA compliance support?
We get it: Safety is your top priority. You have a lot of other responsibilities on your plate, but you know you can’t afford to put compliance on the back burner.
A typical OSHA penalty is several thousand dollars, topping out at more than $15,000. Having compliance and reporting support from an OSHA expert can help ease that burden without putting your employees’ safety at risk.

OSHA compliance support in action
Here’s an example of how an OSHA compliance consultation can benefit your business.
Tim is the owner of Trusted Tree Trimming. In this dangerous line of work, Tim knows the value of safety practices. He’s visited by an OSHA representative regularly. To best prepare for these visits, he often invites POWERS to perform an OSHA compliance consultation to make sure his operations are meeting standards.
During the most recent visit, our OSHA compliance expert notices that the chainsaw chaps Tim’s team is wearing are nearing the end of their useful life. Most have visible wear and tear, and some are losing their elasticity and snug fit.
This heads-up allows Tim to budget for replacement chaps and keep his team’s PPE up to standards well before OSHA comes to visit. He avoids any warnings or citations – which can add up to thousands of dollars.
Most importantly, replacing his PPE means his workers are safe and secure on the job.
