OSHA Region IX Visit

Guam Department of Labor gets Positive Review from OSHA Region IX

For Immediate Release – August 5, 2022

Hagåtña, Guam – The Guam Department of Labor’s (GDOL) Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) On-Site Consultation Program received high marks from Region IX OSHA Safety and Health Compliance Officer Eric Christensen during a two-day visit to Guam to conduct a biennial review of the local consultation office’s operations and practices.

Christensen examined the OSHA On-site Consultation Services case files and records and found them to be impeccable, well written, and organized, even noting that Guam is “the best in the region.” Christensen added that the OSHA On-site Consultation Team goes above and beyond to get the job done.

“We are truly humbled by Mr. Christensen’s performance review. It speaks volumes about the hard work and dedication our team has put into ensuring safety and health standards are always met in the workplace. Our OSHA consultation team is meticulous, knowledgeable, and competent, and their exemplary work deserves this type of recognition,” said GDOL Director David Dell’Isola. “I also want to recognize Governor Lou Leon Guerrero for her support and guidance. When I came back into office, the OSHA On-Site Consultation Services was in high-risk status. The Governor assisted us with our staffing needs, which allowed us to commit more resources and training to this program, and within a year we were removed from high-risk status, giving us better access to federal funding and grants.”

Christensen praised the OSHA On-site Consultation team and thanked them for identifying numerous potential worksite hazards, saying he has no doubt the Guam Team is “making a difference.” He expressed his full confidence in the team’s ability to continue to maintain the high standards they have set for the next OSHA Region IX Program Review.
