Each agency must submit to the Secretary by January 1 of each year a report describing the agency's occupational safety and health program of the previous fiscal year and objectives for the current fiscal year. The report shall include a summary of the agency's self- evaluation findings as required by § 1960.78(b).
The Secretary must provide the agencies with the guidelines and format for the reports at the time they are requested.
The agency reports will be used in preparing the Secretary's report to the President.
The Secretary will submit to the President by October 1 of each year a summary report of the status of the occupational safety and health of Federal employees based on agency reports, evaluations of individual agency progress and problems in correcting unsafe or unhealthful working conditions, and recommendations for improving their performance.
