DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC32 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Cooperative Agreements 
Abstract: OSHA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on September 3, 2010, and provided a 60-day comment period. OSHA proposed to revise its regulations for the federally funded On-site Consultation Program to: a) clarify the ability of the Assistant Secretary to define sites which would receive inspections regardless of Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) exemption status; b) allow Compliance Safety and Health Officers to proceed with enforcement visits resulting from referrals at sites undergoing Consultation visits and at sites that have been awarded SHARP status; and c) limit the deletion period from OSHA's programmed inspection schedule for those employers participating in the SHARP program. Note: SHARP is a recognition program that OSHA administers to provide incentives and support for small employers to develop, implement, and continuously improve effective safety and health programs at their worksites. The agency has fully considered all of the comments received in response to the NPRM. After re-evaluating the proposal in light of these comments, the agency has decided to withdraw the proposed rule.
