OSHA Continues Targeted Inspection Program for Federal Workers

OSHA recently updated its Federal Agency Targeting Inspection Program (FEDTARG) directive for fiscal year 2011, directing programmed inspections of federal agency establishments that experienced high numbers of lost time injuries during 2010.

OSHA will inspect all establishments reporting 100 or more lost time cases (LTCs) during FY 2010; 50 percent of those establishments reporting 50 to 99 LTCs; and 10 percent of those reporting 20 to 49 LTCs. Changes to the directive include defining lost time case to mean a worker who loses time from work beyond the date of the injury. Other changes include updates to OSHA's record keeping violation policy and guidance for inspection of worksites with multiple operations.
