First Link Safety was formed by Robert J. Kohnke who authored the OSHA Partnership Program for Construction in 1996. This innovative partnership is now used nationally and has forged a working relationship between OSHA and the construction industry.

First Link Safety was founded on the need for a quality independent safety consulting firm to assist construction companies in meeting compliance with OSHA regulations. In addition to OSHA compliance, First Link Safety helps clients achieve their safety goals and reduce the cost of worker's compensation insurance.
