The SST program is one of OSHA’s main programmed inspection plans for high-hazard, nonconstruction workplaces with 20 or more employees. The plan is based on data collected from a survey of 80,000 establishments in hazardous industries.

In addition to the SST program, OSHA has national and local emphasis inspection programs to target high-risk hazards and industries. Eleven national emphasis programs are currently in place to address lead, silica, shipbreaking, trenching/excavations, process safety management, and nursing and personal-care facilities.

“Through the SST program, we can prevent injuries and illnesses and save lives by focusing our inspection resources on employers in high-hazard worksites where workers are at greater risk,” said OSHA Administrator Dr. David Michaels.

A directive detailing the program is on the agency’s website at www.osha.gov. Enter SST 2012 in the search box.
