OSHA Introduces New Inspection Program for Businesses with High Injury Rates

The Site-Specific Targeting Directive will apply to non-construction businesses.

OSHA announced on December 16 that it is updating its inspection program to focus on workplaces with frequent health incidents.

The inspection program directs agency enforcement resources to places that have the highest injury and illness rates. The new Site-Specific Targeting Directive (SST) targets non-construction establishments that have 20 or more employees.

The SST directive includes changes such as the creation of a new targeting category for establishments that have consistent injury and illness rates, as well as allowing records only inspections to occur when it is determined that incorrect data led to the establishment’s inclusion in the program.

More information on the directive is available at osha.gov.
