OSHA has launched its long-awaited Recordkeeping National Emphasis Program (NEP).  Effective September 30, the NEP will subject employers in certain industries to comprehensive injury and illness records reviews.  Employers in the targeted industries should take time now to review their recordkeeping logs and practices to prepare for an NEP inspection.

Here is a special report on the NEP, including a description of its scope, the conduct of inspections, and the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders under the program.
