The Field Group provides occupational health and safety consultation to worksites with potential problems identified by a company or labor representative. Our intent is not to compete with private-sector consulting firms, but rather to work primarily with companies whose resources are limited, where there are new or emerging health and safety problems, and/or where there are opportunities for teaching, research, or student experiences.
A field investigation includes a visit to the worksite, observation of work activities, collection of worksite samples or data, laboratory analysis, and review of findings. A final report is issued which includes a summary of findings and recommendations for control of workplace exposures. The Field Group will also work with companies to design and evaluate the effectiveness of control strategies.
