Occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals often have expertise in specific industries or areas of practice that they would like to share with other organizations. The challenge is that technical expertise is not enough to start a consulting practice and make that business financially successful in the long term. This course will offer the opportunity for OSH professionals to explore what it takes to run a consulting business, beyond providing OSH expertise. It will include the traits entrepreneurs have found to be successful; basic business operations such as business plans, legal structure, financial issues, insurance, pricing strategy, proposals, contracts and letters of agreement; and finally the marketing and sales processes that may be needed to bring in consulting work. Throughout the course, participants can network with other OSH professionals at different stages of their consulting journey and gain insight from a safety professional who successfully transitioned from employee to consulting firm owner.
