Environmental Safety Associates

(ESA) is an independent affiliate of Oshex Associates, Inc., and was founded in 1981 to provide consulting services in the fields of noise measurement and control, and machine and facility safety. The geographical area of coverage is worldwide.

ESA's approach to safety is one of risk assessment which incorporates a combined analysis not only of hazard identification, but also of exposure to that hazard. For is a hazard a risk to safety if there is no exposure to that risk?

Many of our satisfied clients have found this a refreshing new perspective in contrast to the expensive and often cumbersome philosophy of guarding every potential hazard regardless of it's actual risk to safety. If a room is excessively noisy but no one is ever in it, is it a risk to hearing loss?

Our aim to to provide you with advice and instruction that is practical and applicable to your real world circumstances.

Consulting Services

In recent years, the scope of ESA's safety operation has expanded to include complete facility safety assessments for compliance to OSHA Section 1910 requirements, machine safety assessments for practical compliance and safe machine operations, and task-based risk assessment and reduction within the guidelines of ANSI B11.TR3.

Noise measurement and reduction services include architectural, industrial, office and community noise assessments and development of recommendations for abatement. In the community noise arena, ESA provides litigation support, arbitration, assistance in the preparation of fair and effective noise legislation, and training of enforcement personnel. Industrial noise services include spot and detailed noise surveys for OSHA compliance, sound dosimetry, octave band analysis and recommendations for engineered noise control solutions. Product development services include assistance to product designers on issues of safety and noise control, including task-based risk assessment.

Seminars & Training

ESA has flexible seminar and training formats available for intensive small group discussion or larger, broad based presentations.
