The Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) today responded to the current order that put the agency's targeted enforcement program, the Cooperative Compliance Program (CCP), on hold. That motion was filed in the D.C. Court of Appeals.
"Today we filed a motion asking the Court to expedite the review schedule of OSHA's Cooperative Compliance Program (CCP). I am convinced that the CCP is the best way to help make the most hazardous workplaces in the country safer for the hundreds of thousands of workers who depend on jobs at these sites. It is important to note that the Court's ruling on February 17, 1998, was not based on the merits of the case, but was instead a temporary ruling until the issues could be fully considered.
"We have also notified the Court of an alternative targeting system that we are prepared to implement until the Court rules on the CCP. OSHA must be able to carry out its duties to protect workers, and this alternative targeting system will complement the inspections we conduct in response to complaints and referrals."
