OSHA Safety Consulting for Construction – Chattanooga TN
Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, Safety Consultants USA provides OSHA Safety Consulting to small, medium and Fortune 500 companies throughout the US.
General Contractors, Specialty Contractors, General Labor Contractors and more all need assistance with safety on construction sites. Whether you have complete team of safety professionals or require the assistance of a fractional safety professional, we can assist you and your employees in their safety goals. Here are some of the ways that we can help you reach your safety goals and the advantages of using a safety consultant for construction.
Full-Time Safety Director on Staff
When a company employs the service of a full-time safety director they may quickly discover that the person in that role is so busy that he or she can use an extra set of hands to write programs, eyes to look at job sites and ears to understand the direction of the safety culture. A safety consultant can be an excellent fit to assist here because they can fill the gaps as needed and provide the required services in a responsive manner. The ability to be in two places at once means that one can conduct training while the other finalizes a JHA for an upcoming project. This model allows for the flexibility to scale up or down as the situation fits.
No Full-Time Director on Staff
Many companies find themselves in need of a fractional safety person in their infancy and as they continue to grow. If these companies were to hire a full-time safety director that person would likely find themselves without enough work and bored in their position, looking for something more challenging that better utilizes their skills. A fractional safety person or more commonly referred to as a safety consultant is a great fit here because companies have the benefit of the advice of a seasoned safety professional without the cost of a full-time employee. Again, this allows for the company to scale up and down and the business needs change, but still ensure that they maintain their focus on a safe workplace for their employees.
Complete Safety Team
Even large multi-billion dollar companies can use extra assistance with safety from time to time. These teams may find that accessing a particularly remote location may be difficult and enlisting the services of a construction safety professional may be advantageous and more cost-effective. They may realize that as their team expands and contracts that the services of a safety consultant help them fill needs that the timing of onboarding a new safety technician or safety manager leaves a hole in their team.
There are several advantages of hiring a safety consultant to help manage construction safety for your company. Briefly, this list includes:
- Cost – because these services are not typically delivered 40 hours a week, 52 weeks of the year, you pay a fraction of the cost of a full-time safety professional.
- Continuity – with many people on the team and multiple people involved in rendering services for your company, any turnover experienced can be much less painful as there are multiple team members that know your company’s procedures and have visited your sites for construction safety inspections.
- Expertise – Safety consulting companies typically employ people from many different backgrounds and with a variety of educational experiences. This translates to safety consultants who have seen a wide variety of environments and can bring that experience to bear on the challenges that construction companies are facing in today’s ever-changing, fast-paced environment. The depth and breadth of experience that a consultant may have and the industries that they have worked with may allow them to bring unique ideas to the table when problem-solving on the jobsite.

Chattanooga ( CHAT-ə-NOO-gə) is a city in and the county seat of Hamilton County, Tennessee, United States. Located along the Tennessee River bordering Georgia, it also extends into Marion County on its western end. With a population of 181,099 in 2020, it is Tennessee’s fourth-largest city and one of the two principal cities of East Tennessee, along with Knoxville. It anchors the Chattanooga metropolitan area, Tennessee’s fourth-largest metropolitan statistical area, as well as a larger three-state area that includes Southeast Tennessee, Northwest Georgia, and Northeast Alabama.
Chattanooga was a crucial city during the American Civil War, due to the multiple railroads that converge there. After the war, the railroads allowed for the city to grow into one of the Southeastern United States’ largest heavy industrial hubs. Today, major industry that drives the economy includes automotive, advanced manufacturing, food and beverage production, healthcare, insurance, tourism, and back office and corporate headquarters. Chattanooga remains a transit hub in the present day, served by multiple Interstate highways and railroad lines. It is 118 miles (190 km) northwest of Atlanta, Georgia, 112 miles (180 km) southwest of Knoxville, Tennessee, 134 miles (216 km) southeast of Nashville, Tennessee, 102 miles (164 km) east-northeast of Huntsville, Alabama, and 147 miles (237 km) northeast of Birmingham, Alabama.
Divided by the Tennessee River, Chattanooga is at the transition between the ridge-and-valley Appalachians and the Cumberland Plateau, both of which are part of the larger Appalachian Mountains. Its official nickname is the “Scenic City”, alluding to the surrounding mountains, ridges, and valleys. Unofficial nicknames include “River City”, “Chatt”, “Nooga”, “Chattown”, and “Gig City”, the latter a reference to its claims that it has the fastest internet service in the Western Hemisphere.
