Earlier this month, 29 New Jersey employers were honored with Governor’s Occupational Safety and Health Awards, a program to recognize worksites – public and private – that have demonstrated effective safety and health programs resulting in the prevention of job-related injuries and illnesses.
“I am pleased to announce that after our on-site OSHA review, we have earned the Safety and Health Performance Award for achievement in the prevention of occupational injuries,” states Ray Hyman, COO at DPK Consulting. “It’s not every day you voluntarily invite OSHA in to audit your operations. 4 OSHA professionals came and did a comprehensive investigation. The OSHA team reviewed 3 years of our logs, our Emergency Action and Response Plan, our Job Safety Analysis Sheets and other documents related to our extensive Health and Safety Program. I was confident because we keep our safety processes and procedures manuals current and spend a good deal of time training our employees. DPK Consulting has a long running commitment to Health & Safety so everything we do is based on best practices. I’m proud of our teams and our managers who support and reinforce safety on a daily basis.”
DPK Consulting maintains an EMR below 1 and have been a recipient of this award many times over the last 20 plus years they’ve been in business. According to Mr. Hyman, they welcomed the OSHA team’s reviews and appreciated the advice received on how best to sustain their processes and safety programs over time. He shared that every new DPK field team member gets their Hazwoper OSHA 40-hour in the first 30 days.

DPK Consulting’s record of safety is a critical part of their business culture. “Our goal is to have every one of our team members go home at the end of the day in the same condition they came in, states James Heiser,” DPK’s President and CEO. “Ray is doing a great job with our operations and is a big reason our processes and programs are as successful as they are. Beyond the safety of our people, our customers in the environmental and construction industries also value safety. It’s often a requirement and we work hard to stay on top of each organizations specific safety protocols.”
