The Occupational Safety and Health Act passed the U.S. Congress in 1970 creating the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA regulations are constantly changing as workplace conditions change, but they are applied to every business workplace – office and field. Some of these regulations are enforced by state agencies with their own regulations. Since 1992, Walsh Certified Consultants, Inc., has been helping our clients comply with OSHA regulations. Walsh Certified Consultants, Inc., facilitates and helps our clients comply with various aspects of their safety programs.

Walsh Certified Consultants, Inc., personnel have conducted numerous accident investigations to help assess the cause of an accident. Accident investigation is a process that must be followed rigorously to make sure evidence is not lost or tainted. Witness and victim interviews, site assessments and process evaluation are integral to the investigation. A third-party investigation can help identify issues that someone too familiar with the issues may not identify.
