The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, has issued its 2014 inspection plan, citing plans to specifically target workplaces where the highest rates of injury and illness occur. The Site-Specific Targeting 2014 program, as it is being called, will direct OSHA enforcement resources to these high-risk places of employment with a goal of reducing injuries and illnesses.  As many on-the-job injuries can be prevented by employers keeping up with safety standards, it’s imperative that businesses maintain a high level of safety for their employees.

What Does the Plan Include?

The Site-Specific Targeting (SST) program is one of OSHA’s main inspection plans for workplaces that have been classified as high-hazard, non-construction workplaces with 20 or more workers.  The plan is based on a survey collected of 80,000 establishments in high-hazard industries.

According to the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, Dr. David Michaels, the program is aimed at “focusing our inspection resources on employers in high hazard industries who endanger their employees,” and will aim to “prevent injuries and illnesses and save lives.”

The program is part of an overall plan for promoting workplace safety, as OSHA implements both national and local-emphasis inspection programs, including programmed inspections to target high-risk industries.  OSHA will also evaluate this program’s effectiveness by conducting a study based on 1,260 randomly selected establishments.

How to Handle an Injury at Work

Workplace injuries are, unfortunately, very common, especially in some high-risk industries like construction, transportation, and manufacturing. Common injuries like falls, getting struck by an object, getting caught in or between something, and electrocutions can often be prevented if employers maintain diligence for workplace safety. If you notice that there are unsafe conditions at your workplace or have almost been injured before, it’s important to bring these things to your employers’ attention. If you or someone you know have been injured at work, seek medical help and notify your employer, then contact a workers compensation lawyer. A lawyer will be able to provide you with the help you need to deal with insurance providers and medical bills as well as any other costs the injury caused you to incur.
