The Idaho Occupational Safety & Health Consultation Program (OSHCon) provides free occupational safety and health services to small businesses within the state to help them understand and comply with rules and regulations required by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).
We do this primarily through onsite consultation services and our audiovisual lending library (see the Onsite Consultation Services, Request a Consultation, and Lending Library sections on this website). Once invited to your business, our consultants can help with hazard recognition, reduction and elimination; industrial hygiene monitoring; and written program requirements. Our lending library can assist you with training, and increasing your knowledge about occupational safety and health.
We are funded by OSHA through the Department of Labor, but are not involved in enforcement efforts and do not assess penalties or fines during a visit with your business.
You can find us on the Boise State University campus at 1113 Denver Avenue. Normal business hours are 8am – 5pm, and we follow the university’s schedule for holidays.
