New Mexico OSHA Consultation

The New Mexico OSHA On-Site Consultation Program Provides Safety and Health Services for Small Businesses

The free and confidential On-site Consultation Program is an excellent way for employers with 250 or fewer workers to address workplace safety and health. This program is administered by the New Mexico State Occupational Health and Safety Bureau (OHSB) Consultation Program. Designed for small employers, the On-site Consultation Program can help you identify hazards and find effective and economical solutions for eliminating or controlling them. The service is cost-free and confidential, and there are no fines even if problems are discovered during the consultant’s visit to your site. The consultant can also assist you in developing and implementing an injury and illness prevention program—an effective way to manage safety and health at your workplace.

The Consultation Program is NOT part of OSHA Enforcement/Compliance. OSHA Enforcement/Compliance conducts unannounced inspections, which may result in enforcement penalties, if hazards are found.  The OHSB Consultation Program wants to help you to prevent this from happening.

When you request and agree to a consultation visit, you agree to correct any serious hazards or imminently dangerous situations that might be identified. Hazards must be corrected in the time frame decided upon between you and the consultant for the safety of your employees.

The OSHA standard 1908.6(e)(8) requires that you post the list of serious hazards and correction due dates when you receive it from your consultant for a minimum of three days or until all hazards are corrected. Information on other hazards as well as correction methods proposed must also be made available to employees.

An online form is available under Request for Consultation Services Form.

A mail in or scanned version of the Consultation Request Form is obtained HERE.
