OSHA evaluates state-run programs

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced it has concluded a special evaluation of state-run occupational safety and health programs under its jurisdiction. Enhanced Federal Annual Monitoring and Evaluation (EFAME) reports are available for each state and provide detailed findings and recommendations regarding the operations of 25 state-run OSHA programs and territories. The evaluation was initiated after construction-related fatalities in Las Vegas prompted a 2009 OSHA special report on Nevada's program and identified operations deficiencies in the state.

The EFAME reports are available at www.osha.gov/dcsp/osp/efame/index.html. States have 30 days to formally respond with a detailed corrective action plan for addressing findings and recommendations. Each state's response will be available online as soon as it is received.
