OSHA's National Emphasis Program Guide


Learn about NEP issues and how to effectively manage these inspections and avoid penalties.

OSHA has more than a dozen National Emphasis Programs (NEPs) currently in effect, including the controversial COVID-19 NEP. More changes to the NEP programs are on the way as OSHA assumes new leadership in 2021. These are the priority 'programmed' inspections and can also trigger concurrent site-specific targeting program inspections that are 'wall-to-wall' instead of being limited in scope to the hazards relating to the NEP. Employers need to be aware of which NEPs cover their workplaces, when the programs will expire, how they are enforced, and which standards are covered by them. This material will address the most significant NEP issues and offer sound advice on how to effectively manage these inspections and avoid penalties of up to $136,532 per violation.
