Local Emphasis Programs otherwise known as LEPs is a strategy to implement health and safety programs at the regional level. OSHA has 10 regions throughout the United States and each have specific concerns. These programs are based off of data collected for the region and implemented to target specific hazards and violations.
The Occupational Health & Safety Administration has compiled a list of LEPs for every region and they should be reviewed by anyone working in their given areas. Find more information on your Local Emphasis Programs on the OSHA website.
