I'm interested in starting a safety consulting firm specifically geared toward breweries to keep employees safe and ensure compliance to OSHA regulations. I figured I'd start with this forum to see if the business idea is even viable.

My questions for you:
Is there a need for safety consulting in the brewery industry?
Would it be beneficial to also include food and environmental regulations?
More specifically, what do you need in a safety consultant? i.e. employee training, written programs, safety procedures, inspections, risk assessments, personal protective equipment, etc?

Thank you for your input!

You may be able to market this to folks with no experience with OSHA. OSHA provides free safety counseling with no worry of prosecution during the consultation. Since it's OSHA giving the advice, you can be sure you are in compliance.

You make a good point, however as I understand the OSHA small business consulting program, they will come in (without risk of penalty), let you know all your risks and how you are out of compliance, but they will not write the programs or conduct training for your operation. EX: they might tell you that you need a confined space entry program or entry training, forklift training, etc. but they wont take the time to write a compliant program or conduct the training, which does require a knowledge of OSHA regulations... the services Id like to offer to breweries.
