OSHA/Environmental Compliance Systems (OECS) provides OSHA and environmental compliance services to companies that do not have the resources to hire a full-time workplace safety professional or need extra hands on deck to fulfill safety requirements. OECS is committed to offering comprehensive, world-class services through a knowledgeable, dedicated and readily available team of expert safety consultants with 200+ years of combined experience. See our brochure.

Our History

Founded in 1993, OECS is an independently owned and operated company based in St. Louis Park, MN. After adding the Dakota’s office based in Fargo in 1999, OECS quickly became the Midwest’s leading workplace safety consulting company. With a loyal following of hundreds of clients, OECS added the Northern Minnesota/Western Wisconsin region in 2019 and the Southern MN and Iowa region in 2021. While the company continues to build on its strong foundation of exceptional service to businesses in the Midwest, it continues to expand nationally, adding offices in South Carolina and Virginia.


February 2023 marked the 30-year anniversary of OECS!  Since opening its doors, OECS has grown to over 30 safety associates and office staff, helping create safe work environments for thousands of employees throughout the Midwest and beyond.  More recently, we launched “Learning Management System by OECS“. Our LMS provides convenient online training to fit our clients’ specific needs. Always looking for ways to help keep employees coming home safe, we now offer Virtual Safety Audits, expanded Industrial Hygiene services, and launched own our book, Building a Strong Safety Culture: The 5 C’s of Workplace Safety.  OECS is also a proud Military Employer!  There’s a lot to celebrate as the company continues to grow and succeed into the future!
