OSHA Revises Compliance Officer Manual

OSHA has revised its Field Operations Manual to provide OSHA Compliance Officers with a single source of updated information and guidance to more effectively protect employees from occupational injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.

The manual--formerly called the Field Inspection Reference Manual--assists Compliance Officers in scheduling and conducting inspections, enforcing regulations, and encouraging continual improvement in workplace safety and health. The manual also provides guidance on how to inform employers about cooperative programs--such as On-Site Consultation, Strategic Partnerships, and the Voluntary Protection Program--to help them eliminate potential or existing hazards from the workplace.

"The new Field Operations Manual is a comprehensive resource of existing OSHA policy and procedural documents," said Thomas M. Stohler, acting assistant secretary of labor for OSHA. "It gives Compliance Officers important guidance in implementing OSHA's balanced approach to workplace safety and health: enforcement, education and training, and cooperative programs. The Field Operations Manual will also be a resource for employees and employers, giving them a consolidated reference on how OSHA expects workplaces to be made safe and healthy. This is part of OSHA's continuing commitment to make its standards and enforcement activities transparent and understandable to all parties."
