OSHA’s New Site-Specific Targeting Inspection Plan

OSHA recently released instructions to implement a new Site-Specific Targeting (SST) inspection plan for non-construction worksites.

In its analysis, OMA Connections Partner Fisher Phillips writes that employers should be vigilant in ensuring that their OSHA 300 logs do not needlessly record non-work-related COVID-19 cases or other non-recordable injuries. Failing to do so needlessly increases an employer’s Days Away, Restricted or Transferred Rate (DART Rate), which will eventually lead to an increase in OSHA inspections long after widespread COVID-19 immunity has been reached. 2/2/2021
