About Us

Since 1999 our team has helped hundreds of companies navigate the regulatory process of complying with Cal/OSHA and Cal/EPA. Employee safety and hazardous materials management can be a daunting and overwhelming task. Safety compliance is usually a time consuming, "back burner" project for your employees. We help you put the elements of an Injury and Illness Prevention Program together, and design a comprehensive plan to suit your individual workplace needs. In developing your plan, we consider your company's immediate needs and help you provide for ongoing worker and employer protection. We can help you determine what is needed to make your environmental, health, and safety plans effective.

Our Compliance Representatives will work with you on a plan, and assist you in establishing procedures for making sure your program remains effective.

When Cal/OSHA citations are involved we help you deal with Cal/OSHA fairly and confidently. Don't be a victim of the system and don't pay for fines you don't have to.
