    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: Selection of Worksites for NEP
    Content:

    • Focus: Worksites where workers are potentially exposed to levels of crystalline silica in excess of the PEL
    • Representative of the distribution of worksites in general industry and construction in each Region
    • At least 2 percent of inspections every year in each Region must be silica-related
    • Functionally, NEP will be a composite of LEPs
    [Includes the OSHA logo]

    Speaker Notes:

    Inspections conducted under this NEP must focus on industries and particular establishments where workers are potentially exposed to levels of crystalline silica in excess of the PEL. Additionally, the silica-related inspections must be conducted at a range of facilities representing the distribution of general industry and construction worksites in that OSHA Region.

    At least 2 percent of inspections every year in each Region must be silica-related.

    Each Area Office of Regional office that does not already have a Local Emphasis Program for crystalline silica, will develop and implement a LEP for crystalline silica based on one or more of the industries in Appendix B.
