Beginning October 1, 2009 the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) National Emphasis Program (NEP) on Injury and Illness Reporting will focus on nursing homes and personal care facilities as a high-rate-of-injury industry to ensure OSHA's recordkeeping requirements are closely followed. This announcement follows a similar goal of OSHA's Sight Specific Target Program, announced on July 20, 2009, to inspect 300 nursing homes and personal care facilities before July 2010.
