Many manufacturers would rather deal with consultants simply to
avoid potential discovery of compliance problems...despite offers
of a "non-enforcement oriented" site visit.
Some site visit programs focus more on pointing out sources of
help rather than offer (any level of) direct assistance
(?liability issues?). In this case a consultant is still needed.
Efficiency may dictate eliminating the middle-man.
I've gleaned from some manufacturers a fear of potentially being
required to implement some suggestions/recommendations that may be
generated by a site-visit.
Many engineers/environmental managers/health & safety
managers/environmental technicians/ etc. very much would
appreciate a site visit but are denied the opportunity by upper
management. Sometimes larger well known companies respond in this
manner for (what I think are) some pretty obvious reasons.
Adapting an old saying, "we're all consultants and you end up
paying for it one way or another".
