On-Site Consulting Services Available

Along with your on-site full service program you receive all the compliance components you need to be OSHA compliant. You have access to online training for new hires or those that missed the on-site training. Your TMC consultant will go through your facility and do a thorough facility audit with an electronic report, meet with your Safety Officer and go over the Compliance manual and officer duties. We provide you with a complimentary spill kit, secondary labels, OSHA support, and work with you to achieve OSHA compliance to create a long-lasting relationship with you rather than just providing a how-to-guide that requires you to do all the work. Our goal is to be your primary resources for HIPAA, OSHA, and Infection Control compliance.
