followed by a walk through of your work place and a closing conference. Once the consultation visit begins
you can increase or narrow the scope of the survey. You are with us every step of the way. You play an
active role in the survey, and we encourage you to ask questions. Or, if you change your mind during the
visit, the consultation survey stops immediately. However, you are still obligated to correct any hazards
we observed up to that point.

But, our work doesn't stop there. We will also show you how to correct the hazards and avoid any potential
injuries. Your only obligation for this free service is to remedy identified hazards in an agreed upon
amount of time.

of the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health Compliance Unit.
