Health & Safety Management Assistance

This service provides cost effective technical assistance to help members comply with laws regulating hazardous materials, employee safety, and employee/student environmental health. We conduct mock OSHA inspections to help our members in identifying, prioritizing and scheduling health and safety capital projects.
Through this process, we:

·       Identify and prioritize health and safety concerns.

·       Help plan the scheduling of remediation of health and safety hazards.

·       Help with monitoring to prevent redevelopment of the hazard and discover new hazards.

·       Help with applying for health & safety project funding.

·       Organize group training in specific areas of identified need.


For more information about OSHA compliance in schools, health and safety funding, and Health & Safety Management Assistance Program, please email Bob Tweten, phone 507-281-6663.
