State Consultation Program Employers concerned about providing their employees with a safe and healthful workplace can request an on-site visit by one of the OSHA Consultation Program's consultants to determine if safety and health hazards exist. The goal of this program is to help Nebraska employers identify and correct potential safety and health hazards before they become dangerous and expensive problems. This Department of Labor program provides a no-cost service to Nebraska employers with one or more employees.
Nebraska's Workers' Compensation Reform (LB757) - Nebraska's Workers' Compensation Reform (LB757), passed September 9, 1993, created the Workplace Safety Consultation Program. This Program, under sections 48-443 through 48-449 provides job safety and health protection for public and private employees. The law applies to all public and private employers who are subject to the Nebraska Workers' Compensation Act. Pursuant to this legislation effective January 1, 1994, every public and private employer in Nebraska is required to establish and maintain at least one safety committee in the workplace. The committee must consist of an equal number of committee members representing both the employer and the employees.
