First implemented in 1999, the SST program uses data from the OSHA Data Initiative survey to focus OSHA resources on outreach, consultations, technical assistance and target workplaces that have reported high injury and illness rates. Sites selected under the SST program receive both a comprehensive safety and a comprehensive health inspection.
Specifically, OSHA is seeking comments on the following questions:
Written comments on OSHA's SST inspection program must be submitted in duplicate to the Docket Officer, Docket C-08, Room N2625, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, DC, (202) 693-2350. Comments limited to ten pages or fewer may also be transmitted by fax to (202) 693-2350. Comments of ten pages or fewer may be faxed to the Docket Office at (202) 693-1648, provided that the original and one copy are sent to the Docket Office immediately thereafter. Electronic comments may be submitted to: http://ecomments.osha.gov/
