Meeting Description:

OSHA’s New Site-Specific Targeting Enforcement Program

Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 1 PM ET

Presented by Amanda Walker, Aaron Gelb and Dan Deacon

More than two years after OSHA published the E-Recordkeeping Rule, the agency finally revealed some of its plans for how it will utilize employers' 300A injury data collected under the new Rule.  In late October 2018, OSHA launched its new Site-Specific Targeting Enforcement Program, which outlines how the agency will select non-construction establishments for programmed inspection.  OSHA will create targeted inspection lists based on employers' higher than average Days Way, Restricted or Transfer (“DART”) injury rates.  OSHA will also include a random sample of establishments with lower than expected injury rates for quality control.  Thus, all employers covered by OSHA’s E-Recordkeeping Rule may be subject to an SST inspection.

Participants in this webinar will learn:

  • Overview of data submission requirements of E-Recordkeeping
  • How OSHA selects establishments for inspection
  • Scope of inspections under the SST Program
  • Applicable exceptions to the SST inspections
  • Tips for Employers to Prepare for an SST inspection
Date: Tue, Mar 19, 2019
Time: 01:00 PM EDT
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes
Host(s): Amanda Walker, Aaron Gelb, and Dan Deacon
