Becker Iron & Metal, of Franklin Park, Illinois, reached out to Illinois OSHA in 2011 for its first consultation visit. Like many other small businesses, Becker hoped to improve its safety programs and foster a partnership with an expert to evaluate current conditions without the fear of repercussion. OSHA’s free and, most importantly, confidential consultation program proved to be the answer to Becker’s problems.
