This directive describes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Federal Agency Targeting Inspection Program (FEDTARG) for fiscal year (FY) 2012. It defines key terms, describes the development process of FEDTARG inspection lists, outlines scheduling and inspection procedures for federal establishments, and provides information on inspection coding within the Integrated Management Information System (IMIS), and the OSHA Information System (OIS). In addition, the directive raises Regional awareness about the use of federal agency alternate and supplementary standards in developing local emphasis programs. The directive includes two appendices. Appendix A describes the handling of federal establishment participation in the Voluntary Protection Programs and the OSHA Strategic Partnership Program (OSPP), and explains IMIS/ OIS coding terminology. Appendix B provides a reference for the abbreviations, acronyms and symbols used in this directive.
