The Office of Small Business Assistance is a newly-created OSHA office that not only administers OSHA's nationwide On-Site Consultation Program, but also serves as liaison and a point of contact within the agency for small businesses. OSHA offers many services designed to help small businesses and welcomes comments and suggestions from small business owners and their employees as to how OSHA can better serve their needs.

On-Site Consultation
Small Business Assistance

OSHA's On-Site Consultation Service offers free and confidential advice to small and medium-sized businesses in all states across the country, with priority given to high-hazard worksites. Consultation services are totally separate from enforcement and do not result in penalties or citations.

OSHA's Office of Small Business Assistance serves to promote all of the agency activity on behalf of small business. It provides outreach and compliance assistance to small businesses and works to develop and enhance relations between the agency and small business employers.
