|<<< Back to OSHA's New National Emphasis Program: Crystalline Silica||Printing Instructions | Text Version|
Title: Selection of Worksites for NEP
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.
