OSHA Revises its 2008 Site-Specific Targeting Inspection Plan

OSHA has revised its 2008 Site-Specific Targeting (SST-08) inspection plan to include significant changes. The new plan:

  • Changes the requirement that all establishments on the Primary List be inspected to allow the Regional Administrators to authorize fewer inspections if their Area Offices are subject to other inspection commitments.
  • Corrects an inconsistency regarding deletions from the inspection lists when creating inspection cycles. Area offices will be responsible for making appropriate deletions from the inspection cycle. Deletion criteria for previous inspections, public sector employers, VPP, or SHARP establishments may be applied either prior to creating a cycle or after a cycle is created. However, Partnership and EEP establishments cannot be deleted until after the cycle is created.
  • Changes the period for deleting establishments with a previous comprehensive inspection from 24 to 36 months. Establishments that receive a comprehensive safety inspection or qualified for a "records only" inspection within the previous 36 months will be deleted from the inspection list.
  • Revises criteria for deletions of SHARP sites. If an establishment is in the process of meeting the criteria of an OSHA Consultation Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP), it is to be deleted from OSHA's SST inspection lists for a period established by the On-Site Consultation Project and approved by the Regional Administrator.
  • Deletes the criterion of "current knowledge concerning the industry" for when an Area Director can expand a health inspection.
  • Allows an establishment that is on the Primary/Secondary Lists to be moved to the current inspection cycle if it is also on any Emphasis Program inspection list.

The revised plan cancels and replaces OSHA's Notice 08-03 (CPL 02) 2008 Site-Specific Targeting plan issued May 19, 2008. To read the new plan, go to www.osha.gov/OshDoc/Directive_pdf/CPL_02_08-07.pdf.
