OSHA draws up inspection hit list

A little ergonomics focus in the inspections ...

"OSHA this week announced that its 2005 site-specific targeting (SST) plan will focus on approximately 4,400 high-hazard work sites for unannounced comprehensive inspections over the coming year.
In the past seven years, OSHA has used a site-specific targeting inspection program based on injury and illness data. This year's program is based on the agency's Data Initiative for 2004, which surveyed approximately 80,000 employers to attain their injury and illness numbers for 2003.

OSHA will again inspect nursing homes and personal care facilities, but only the highest 50 percent rated establishments will be included on the Primary List. Inspections will focus primarily on ergonomic hazards relating to resident handling; exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials; exposure to tuberculosis; and slips, trips and falls."   continued ...   (Via Industry News)
