Employer Testimonials

What employers have said about L&I consultation

"What impressed me most was that I got free advice from (WISHA consultants) who knew the law well enough to be able to help me comply rapidly and inexpensively. As a bonus many of the suggestions have actually helped to lower my cost of production.I would be happy to recommend your services. You may refer people to me, use whatever material in this letter you wish or I will be happy to provide more material."  

Thomas J. Walz, President of Carbide Processors

"Wishing to commend you and your department on a job well done in regards to the WISHA consultation services provided. Our field supervisors have found this service to be an invaluable tool in making their projects safer for everyone. We have found that once we call, a visit is scheduled within just a few days and that the consultation staff is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help us work out our safety issues. All questions asked by our supervisors or employees are answered with the upmost professionalism and accurancy. Each site visit uncovers a wealth of information and the follow-up procedures and reports are excellent.

Again, thank you for the excellent service that your department and staff provide in aiding us to create a safe working environment for everyone." 

Randy L. Zutter, Paras General Contractors

"Lydig has come from having a Modification Rate over 1.57 in the late 80's to a company low of .52 in 2002. We have seen firsthand that, with the tools provided in the construction sector for education and training, safety can pay.One particular service provided by your Department that has been extremely beneficial to our safety success has been Consultation Services. Throughout the State we have continued to benefit from a group that has not ony been educational, but one that understands the construction industry, and specifically the dynamics of commercial construction.

Hats off to the department for continuing to provide this service. And, from a contractor that went from hoping for luck to being a leader nationally (ranked 1st by AGC of America in 2001), we can see the benefits of working with people like you to achieve the same goals in a non-threatening environment. It will always be our intention to utilize Consultation Services, and I would hope that this service will always be available.

Thanks again." 

Doug Lydig, Safety Director, Lydig Construction
