The updated program went into effect on Sept. 15 and will remain in effect until it is canceled or superseded. Further details about the new criteria can be found on OSHA’s website and in a recent agency directive.
The Severe Violator Enforcement Program focuses enforcement and inspection resources on employers who willfully or repeatedly violate federal health and safety laws or refuse to correct previous violations. Employers placed in the program appear on a public list of severe violators and are subject to follow-up inspections by OSHA.
