OSHA Issues Revised NEP on Amputations - Screen Printing Included!

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued an updated National Emphasis Program on Amputations. The NEP has been in existence since 2006 and is targeted to industries with high numbers and rates of amputations. The NEP includes a list of industries with high numbers and rates of amputations as reported to BLS. Since 2006, OSHA’s emphasis program has targeted the printing industry (NAICS Code 323111) however, the updated program now specifically references screen printing (323113). The Directive, CPL 03-00-019, sets out the policies and procedures for implementing a program to identify and reduce workplace machinery and equipment hazards that are causing or are likely to cause amputations. Inspections initiated under this NEP will be scheduled and conducted in accordance with provisions identified in OSHA’s policy for conducting inspections.
