Mr. Stuart Nattrass
HM Chief Inspector of Construction
Health and Safety Executive
London South Area
1 Long Lane
London, England SE1 4PG
Dear Mr. Nattrass:
Thank you for your letter of December 9, 1994 requesting information about the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) policy on Focused Inspections in Construction. Enclosed is a copy for your information.
We believe this new policy will allow us to use our limited resources more effectively by focusing (i.e. limiting) our attention at qualifying worksites on the most hazardous situations, and using resource intensive comprehensive inspections at other worksites. Qualifying worksites must have both a safety plan and an individual responsible for implementing the plan to show the necessary commitment to safety.
If you need further information, please contact Mr. Roy Gurnham of my staff in the Office of Construction and Maritime Compliance Assistance at (202) 219-8136 ext. 150.
James W. Stanley
Deputy Assistant Secretary
