Answer:

We do not issue citations, nor do we report non-compliances. SCATS consultations are confidential.

Our purpose is to aid Nevada employers with OSHA compliance, ensure a safe workplace, and help them protect their businesses.

Question:

What can I expect during a SCATS visit?

Answer:

It depends on the scope of the visit. For example, an employer may request a safety consultant to review the site’s safety and health programs; while another employer may request an industrial hygienist to evaluate the airborne hazards associated with an industrial operation. After you request a consultation visit, a consultant will contact you to discuss the details of the visit.

Any business can request a consultation. However, SCATS’ visits are prioritized to provide services to small businesses that fall under a high hazard industry.
