New OSHA Inspection Program Targets Federal Agencies

OSHA has issued a notice implementing a new national, OSHA-wide targeting program for workplaces staffed by federal employees or contractors whose work is supervised on a day-to-day basis by federal agency personnel. The notice outlines the procedures to be used in carrying out planned inspection activity at some of the most hazardous federal workplaces. It applies solely to federal agency work sites and does not affect state plan programs.

The Federal Agency Targeting Program (FEDTARG08) is designed to focus on specific federal agency worksites that experienced a high number of lost time injuries during fiscal year 2006. Establishment-specific lost time claims data was obtained from the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs to implement this program, and inspections conducted under the plan will be comprehensive safety inspections.

The national OSHA office will provide each region with a list of establishments that meet the criteria for the primary inspection list within its coverage area. On request, the national office also will provide each region with lists of establishments that reported 20-49 and 50-99 lost time cases during FY 2006, to be used in generating secondary inspection cycles.

In addition, during an inspection under the targeting program, OSHA may open another inspection of contractors performing work that is not being supervised by the federal agency if hazards are observed. The notice implementing the targeting program is at www.osha.gov/OshDoc/Directive_pdf/FAP01_08-01.pdf.
