NEP for Nursing and Residdential Care Facilities

A new National Emphasis Program (NEP) for Nursing and Residential Care Facilities was released on April 5 by the U.S. Department of Labor‘s (DOL) Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in an effort to reduce occupational illnesses and injuries in these long-term care settings.

The NEP (pdf) provides guidance for a three-year effort to use OSHA outreach and inspections to reduce specific occupational hazards in nursing and residential care facilities.
