In that case, ask specifically what credentials and certifications the
client company requires. If the client doesn't know, determining what
they need for them is a $100/hour contract by itself.

That's exactly what I've learned from the responses I've received. I
don't
yet know who the potential client is, except that their product is
related
to safety on construction sites. I suspect that they are somewhat
ignorant
when it comes to the role of a technical writer. I worked for a local
electronics manufacturer and the information regarding electrical safety
came from a compliance engineer. All I did was add it to the front
matter of
the manual and apply the formatting. For content, the manuals were
always
reviewed by SMEs wherever I worked.

Thanks to everyone for their responses. I now have a much clearer idea
of
how to respond to this question.
