This week, the U.S. Department of Labor announced that OSHA has updated its Site-Specific Targeting (SST) Program to target workplaces with the highest injury and illness rates for calendar years 2017-2019. The update took effect Dec. 14 and replaced the 2016 SST Program. In addition, OSHA said it will implement national and local emphasis programs to target high-risk hazards and industries.
