Federal Program Change. This Notice describes a Federal OSHA program change for which
State adoption is not required.
The site specific targeting inspection plan described in this Notice is not required to be adopted
by States; however, States are required to have their own inspection targeting systems (a "core
inspection policy"), which must be documented in their State Plan supplements.
There are a number of options available to States.
Use an existing State-developed high hazard inspection targeting system based
on available State data.
Use an existing high hazard inspection targeting system based on OSHA
Instruction CPL 2.25I, which is based on Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)
injury/illness rate data. (The Office of Statistics will continue to make these
State-specific lists available to a State annually, upon specific request.)
Use the targeting inspection plan set out in this Notice. The plan is based on
establishment-specific employer LWDII data obtained through the 2000 Data
Initiative. (The Office of Statistics will provide a Data Initiative list of high-rate
employers within the State and criteria for inspection categories, upon specific
The two-way memorandum transmitting OSHA Notice 99-3 (CPL 2; April 19, 1999)
asked States to indicate which of the above scheduling options they were following, and
to notify the Regional Administrator if the State adopted a different scheduling system
(and submit a plan supplement when appropriate). If the State is continuing to follow
the option indicated in its response to that memorandum, no action is necessary. If a
State adopts or develops a different inspection scheduling system from that indicated in
its response to the April 19, 1999 Notice, the State must notify the Regional
Administrator of the change and provide the necessary plan supplement describing its
inspection targeting program.

Data Initiative (a.k.a. Data Survey): The Data Initiative is a nationwide collection of
establishment-specific injury and illness data from approximately 80,000 establishments.
It collects data from establishments by using the "OSHA Occupational Injury and
Illness Data Collection Form." The Data Initiative is OSHA's Annual Survey Form
that is referred to in 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1904.17
(§1904.41 in the new Recordkeeping rule published in the Federal Register on
January 19, 2001).
Note: The 1999 injury and illness data that was collected by the 2000 Data Initiative is
used in the 2001 Site Specific Targeting program.
Lost Workday Injury and Illness (LWDII) Rate: This includes cases involving days
away from work and restricted work activity and is calculated based on (N/EH) x
(200,000) where N is the number of lost work day injuries and illnesses combined, EH
is the total number of hours worked by all workers during the calendar year and
200,000 is the base for 100 full-time equivalent workers. For example:
Workers of an establishment including management, temporary, and leased
workers worked 645,089 hours at this worksite. There were 22 lost workday
injuries and illnesses from the OSHA 200 (totals in columns 2 and 9). The LWDII
rate would be (22/645,089) x (200,000) = 6.8.
- Partnership: In this Notice partnership refers only to those agreements in which
establishments participate in a partnership with OSHA in accordance with OSHA
Instruction TED 8-0.2, and for which there is a signed partnership agreement.
Description of the Site Specific Targeting 2001 (SST-01) Plan.
Primary Inspection List. The SST-01 plan selects for inspection individual worksites
(except construction), as identified through the 2000 Data Initiative. The national
average LWDII rate for private industry for 1999 was 3.0. The SST-01 plan initially
selects for inspection all worksites with a LWDII rate at or above 14.0 (approximately
This year there is no limitation on the number of inspections for nursing homes. Nursing
homes with a LWDII rate at or above 14.0 are to be inspected.
Supplemental Inspection List. If an Area Office will complete its inspections of all
establishments with LWDII rates at or above 14.0 (i.e., the Primary Inspection List in
IX. A., above) before the expiration of this SST program, it should obtain additional
establishments from those establishments reporting an LWDII rate of 8.0 or greater but
less than 14.0 in the 2000 Data Initiative. These establishments will be inspected using
the procedures in this Notice.
The supplemental list will be available from the SST website. Establishments on the
supplemental list will be available for inclusion in a cycle after all establishments in the
primary list have been selected for a cycle.
Establishments with Fewer than 40 Workers. If an establishment to be inspected under
the SST-01 plan has fewer than 40 workers at the time the compliance officer arrives
on site to begin the inspection, the inspection will still be conducted, provided that the
establishment has more than ten workers and either its LWDII rate is at or above 8.0
or records are not available. See XII. E., below for more details.
Different SIC Code. If the establishment on the Primary or the Supplemental
Inspection List is found to have a SIC code not in the Data Initiative SIC code list
(Appendix A), verify the SIC code, and proceed with inspection based on high rate.
Enter the correct SIC code on the OSHA 1.
Scheduling. The National Office will provide each Area Office with access to software and
databases containing the establishments on the Primary Inspection List for its coverage area.
As discussed in IX.B., the National Office will also provide each Area Office with a
Supplemental Inspection List. Software and databases will be available on the SST website.
Cycle Size. Inspection cycles for the Primary and the Supplemental Inspection Lists
will be generated using the SST2001 software. See Appendix C. Area Offices will
base their determination of cycle size (i.e., 5 to 25 establishments) on considerations of
available resources and geographic range of the office. Larger cycle sizes will allow
greater flexibility and efficiency of scheduling, but once begun, the cycle must be
completed. If a cycle larger than 25 would provide the Area Office with more efficient
use of staff, the office should request Regional Office approval for a larger cycle size.
Within a cycle, the establishments may be scheduled and inspected in any order that
makes efficient use of available resources.
When a cycle is completed, the Area Office may generate a new cycle using the
SST2001 software. See Appendix C.
All of the establishments in a cycle must be inspected before any establishments in a
new cycle may be inspected. The exceptions are provided in OSHA Instruction CPL
2.25I, at paragraph B.1.b.(1)(e)1, which lists when carry overs will be allowed.
In addition to the carryovers allowed in OSHA Instruction CPL 2.25I, an establishment
participating in a partnership in accordance with OSHA Instruction TED 8-0.2 and for
which there is a signed agreement, may be carried over to a future cycle to allow the
SST inspection to be deferred up to six months from the signing of the partnership
In addition, the establishments, in any cycle begun but not yet completed by the
expiration date of this Notice, must be inspected even if the inspection is initiated after
the expiration date.
Inspection Priority. Normally inspection priorities as described in the FIRM (OSHA
Instruction CPL 2.103) will be followed, with the following additional guidance:
The first inspection priority for Area Offices is to conduct unprogrammed
Area Offices that have started but not completed a cycle of inspections from
OSHA Notice 00-05 (the SST-MM revised plan) must normally complete that
cycle before moving to inspections under the SST-01 plan, but see X.A.
regarding carry overs. Any remaining cycles under OSHA Notice 00-05,
which have not been started, will not be used.
The Supplemental Inspection List does not have to be completed before the
expiration date of this Notice, but any cycle created from the Supplemental List
that has been started must be completed even if the inspections are initiated
after the expiration date, unless prior approval has been received from the
Deputy Assistant Secretary. See X.A.
Area Offices will continue to conduct other programmed inspections under
national emphasis programs, or under local emphasis/initiative programs as the
Area Office and Regional goals dictate.
Deletions. Area Offices will be responsible for making appropriate deletions to the inspection
list, such as for establishments that are no longer in business, in accordance with CPL 2.25I at
B.1.b.(1)(b)6.d., except for criteria H# and S#.
Establishments that have received a comprehensive safety and health inspection after
January 1, 1999 will be deleted from the inspection list. See also XII.A.
If any public sector employers (i.e., Federal, State, or local government), except the U.S.
Postal Service, appear on the Primary Inspection List or the Supplemental Inspection List, they
are to be deleted. Remember: The OSH Act was amended in 1998 in order to treat the
U.S. Postal Service as a private sector employer.
If, after January 1, 1999, an establishment that is implementing an OSHA Strategic Partnership
(see TED 8-0.2) has had an OSHA strategic partnership verification inspection, it may be
deleted from the SST inspection list, if the partnership agreement targets
all of the most serious hazards prevailing at the establishment, and the verification inspection
addressed these targeted hazards.
Scope. Inspections conducted under this plan will be comprehensive programmed
safety and health inspections as defined by the FIRM (OSHA Instruction CPL 2.103)
and conducted in accordance with the procedures described there and in other
guidance documents. If, however, an establishment has had either a comprehensive
safety or health inspection since January 1, 1999, then only the other
comprehensive inspection need be done, and the Compliance Officer may make a safety or a health
referral for hazards observed.
An SST inspection at any partnership site will normally be a comprehensive safety and
health inspection. An Area Director has discretion to conduct a limited inspection
focused on hazards targeted by the partnership agreement if all of the most serious
hazards prevailing at the partnering workplace are identified as targets of the
Citations. Violations will be cited according to the FIRM (OSHA Instruction CPL
2.103) and other guidance documents.
Compliance Officers. Inspections under the plan may be conducted either as one
combined safety and health inspection by a cross-trained compliance officer (as
established through specific training or demonstrated ability), or as separate safety and
health inspections, or as joint safety and health inspections.
For a checklist of items that compliance officers need to accomplish on inspections
please refer to Appendix B.
Ownership. If the establishment changed ownership since December 31, 1999 and has
been under new ownership for more than six months, recalculate the rate for the period
of new ownership. If the recalculated LWDII rate is below 8.0, do not conduct the
inspection. If it is at or above 8.0, conduct the inspection. (When calculating the
LWDII for the period of the new ownership, which may be less than a year, be sure
both N and EH are for the new ownership period.)
In facilities where the ownership has changed, compliance officers must enter into the
IMIS the Dun & Bradstreet (Dun's) number of the new owner in the appropriate field
on the Establishment Detail Screen (see XV).
Recalculate LWDII. During inspections under this Notice, the OSHA 200 logs for
1998, 1999, and 2000 will be reviewed. The LWDII rate for all three years will be
recalculated and recorded on the OSHA-1 Form. The LWDII rate for 1999 (calcu-lated by the compliance officer) will be compared to the LWDII rate reported by the
employer to the OSHA 2000 Data Initiative data collection. (See paragraph VIII.B.,
above, for an example of LWDII calculations.) A recalculation will not be performed
if, for any reason, the relevant records are not immediately available. Compliance
officers will check OSHA-101 Forms, or equivalent, as they deem appropriate to
validate the OSHA-200 Forms.
If records are not available for compliance officers to make this determination, the
workplace comprehensive safety and health inspection will proceed.
If the establishment's recalculated rate for 1999 is below 14.0, but the 1999 or 2000
LWDII rate is at or above 8.0, proceed with the inspection.
If the establishment's recalculated rate using the establishment's records is less than 8.0
for both 1999 and 2000, do a records review (not a records audit which requires the
use of an audit software program) for 2000 only, and then recalculate the
establishment's LWDII rate for 2000. Classify the inspection as a "records only"
inspection and exit the facility if the rate for both years is below 8.0.
If recordkeeping violations are discovered, they must be cited in accordance with
OSHA Instruction CPL 2.111. A partial walkthrough may be conducted to inter-view
workers in order to confirm and verify the injury and illness experience. Any serious
violations that are observed in the vicinity or brought to the attention of the compliance
officer must be investigated and may be cited.
Relationship to Other Programs.
Unprogrammed Inspections. Unprogrammed inspections will be conducted according
to the FIRM (OSHA Instruction CPL 2.103) or other guidance documents. If the
occasion for an unprogrammed (e.g., complaint, fatality) inspection arises with respect
to an establishment that is also in the current inspection cycle to receive a programmed
inspection under the SST-01 plan, the two inspections may be conducted either
concurrently or separately. See XIV.B.
National Emphasis Programs. Some establishments may be selected for inspec-tion
under the SST-01 plan and also under one or more other OSHA initiatives (National
Emphasis (NEP) or Local Emphasis (LEP) programs). Programs based upon
particular hazards (such as silica, lead, or amputations) or on particular industries (such
as logging or scrap yards) can be run concurrently with the SST-01 plan; however, the
SST-01 plan inspections have priority. Whenever an establishment is scheduled for
inspection on the current cycle of the SST-01 plan and on the current cycle of an
NEP/LEP plan, the inspections should be scheduled at the same time. Compliance
officers will apply all applicable IMIS codes to the inspection. The employer's Dun's
number must also be recorded for each inspection since it is important for tracking.
Process Safety Management Inspections. Inspections conducted under the site specific
targeting plan will address process safety management if 29 CFR 1910.119 applies to
the establishment being inspected. Such inspections must be comprehensive safety and
health inspections regardless of whether the establish-ment's SIC code is one of those
specified in OSHA Instruction CPL 2-2.45A; however, they will not normally be
Program-Quality-Verification (PQV) inspections as defined by that instruction.
Partnerships. If an OSPP verification inspection is scheduled close in time to an inspection under this SST plan, the two inspections may be conducted concurrently or
Recording and Tracking.
SST-Only Inspections. The OSHA-1 Forms must be marked as "programmed
planned" in item 24. In addition, the "NEP" box is to be checked and the value
"SSTARG01" recorded in item 25d (the SST inspections are being coded under the
NEP for ease of tracking).
SST Combined with Unprogrammed Inspections. For all Unprogrammed inspections
conducted in conjunction with an SST inspection, the OSHA-1 Forms must be marked
as "unprogrammed" in item 24 with the appropriate unprogrammed activity identified.
In addition, the "NEP" box is to be checked and the value "SSTARG01" recorded in
SST Combined with NEP or LEP Inspections. For all Programmed inspections such
as NEPs and LEPs conducted in conjunction with an SST inspection, the OSHA-1
Forms must be marked as "programmed planned" in item 24. In addition, the "NEP"
box is to be checked and the value "SSTARG01" recorded in item 25d along with all
NEP and LEP IMIS codes applicable to the inspection.
Dun's Number. The Dun's number, which is a required entry for all plan inspections, must be
recorded in the appropriate field on the Establishment Detail Screen. This can be accessed by
pressing F5 in Item 8 to access establishment processing. Once establish-ment processing is
completed, the Dun's number will appear in Item 9b.

SICs with final digit of zero are three-digit SICs and include all four-digit SICs with the same
first three digits.
Note: With certain exceptions, all of which are discussed below, these industries are those for
which the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported industry-wide injury and illness rates 5.0 or
above for 1996 or 1997 (the most current data available at the time the industries were selected
for inclusion in the Data Initiative). The private industry LWDII rate for 1997 was 3.3. The
exceptions are construction, mining, commercial sports, deep sea domestic transportation of
freight, and industries in which many of the employers are state and local governments.
Construction was excluded because construction workplaces are inspected pursuant to a
separate administrative plan. Mining was excluded because most mining operations are subject
to the Mine Safety and Health Act. Commercial sports were excluded because athletic injuries
are largely beyond the scope of OSHA enforcement. Deep sea domestic transportation of
freight was excluded because most operations are under the jurisdiction of the Coast Guard.
Industries with high concentrations of state and local government employers were excluded
because state and local governments are not subject to federal OSHA enforcement.
Department Stores (SIC 5310) had a LWDII rate of 5.0 in 1996 and 4.8 in 1997, and
Hospitals (8060) had a LWDII rate below 5.0 both years, but they were both included,
because of the large number of injuries and illnesses in these industries. Because these
industries contained too many establishments to permit their total inclusion while still limiting the
survey to 80,000 establishments, approximately 1000 randomly selected establishments from
each of Department Stores and Hospitals were included.
Two four-digit SICs included in the survey were in three-digit SICs with rates below 5.0.
These were SIC 0783 (Ornamental Tree and Shrub Services) and SIC 5093 (Scrap and
Waste Material). Even though the overall rates for the three-digit SICs were relatively low,
SICs 0783 and 5093 were surveyed because the historically large number of fatalities in those
industries made them of special concern to OSHA.
Also, for two three-digit SICs with rates above 5.0, OSHA surveyed only one four-digit
component. These were SIC 4953 (Refuse Systems), which is within SIC 4950 (Sanitary
Services), and SIC 4783 (Packing and Crating), which is within SIC 4780 (Miscellaneous
Services Incident to Transportation). In the case of SIC 4950, SIC 4953 was included in the
survey because of SIC 4950's high overall rate (7.1) and SIC 4953's high historical fatality
rate, while SICs 4952 (Sewerage Systems) and 4959 (Sanitary Services, Not Elsewhere
Classified) were excluded because they include a large percentage of public sector employers.
In the case of SIC 4780, which had an overall rate of 5.6, SIC 4783 was included because
OSHA believed it was the primary contributor to the industry's overall high rate.
Three industries, Trucking Terminal Facilities (SIC 4230); Airports, Flying Fields, & Services
(SIC 4580); and Motor Vehicles, Parts, and Supplies (SIC 5010), had rates below 5.0 in
1997 but were above 5.0 in 1995. Only new establishments and those establishments with a
rate of 7.0 or greater in the 1999 Data Initiative were included in the data collection.
2. All establishments in Logging (SIC 2411) with 11 or more employees. These establishments were
surveyed to support OSHA's strategic plan, which has as one of its goals a 15% reduction in the
historically high rates of injuries and fatalities in Logging by the year 2002.
3. Some establishments in Maryland, Hawaii, New Mexico, North Carolina, Nevada and Minnesota
were surveyed for the sole use of those state plans in evaluating their programs.
Compliance Officer Checklist
Verify SIC Code.
If not on Data Initiative SIC code list (Appendix A), verify the SIC code, and proceed with the
inspection based on high rate. Enter correct SIC code on OSHA 1.
If the establishment has fewer than 40 employees, proceed with inspection as long as there are
more than ten employees, and its LWDII rate is at or above 8.0, or if records are not available.
If the establishment changed ownership since December 31, 1999, recalculate the rate for the
period of new ownership (if at least six months). If the recalculated LWDII is below 8.0, do
not conduct the inspection. If it is at or above 8.0, conduct the inspection. (When calculating
the LWDII for the period of the new ownership, which may be less than a year, be sure both N
and EH are for the new ownership period.) See IMIS section below for Dun's number entry.
In facilities where the ownership has changed, enter into the IMIS the Dun & Bradstreet
(Dun's) number of the new owner in the appropriate field on the Establishment Detail Screen.
Verify LWDII Rate.
Review the OSHA-200 logs for 1998, 1999, and 2000. The LWDII rate for all three years
will be recalculated and recorded on the OSHA 1 Form. The LWDII rate for 1999
(calculated by CSHO) will be compared to the LWDII rate reported by the employer to the
OSHA 2000 Data Initiative data collection. A recalculation will not be performed if, for any
reason, the relevant records are not immediately available. Compliance officers will check
OSHA-101 Forms as they deem appropriate to validate the OSHA-200 Forms.
If the review confirms a 1999 rate or 2000 rate below 14.0, but at or above 8.0,
proceed with the inspection.
If the review confirms a rate less than 8.0 for each year, then do a records review for
2000 and recalculate the LWDII for 2000. Then classify the inspection as a "records
only" inspection and exit the facility.
For "records only" inspections: A partial walk through may be conducted to interview
workers in order to confirm and verify the injury and illness experience. Any
recordkeeping violations, in addition to any serious violations that are observed in the
vicinity, or brought to the attention of the CSHO, must be investigated and may be
