WI LOCAL EMPHASIS PROGRAM
Is your company ready for an inspection? According to OSHA, injury rates for Wisconsin food manufacturers are nearly 24% higher compared to other production facilities in the state. For this reason, OSHA has developed a Local Emphasis Program (LEP) for Food Manufacturing Industry that went into effect July 19, 2022. The scope of inspections conducted under this LEP shall generally be safety inspections focusing on evaluating machine guarding hazards associated with points of operation, ingoing nip points, and moving or rotating parts of food processing equipment.
