Grassroots Workplace Protection is an annual report published on behalf of OSHSPA - the OSHA State Plan Association. Member states are those states with their own state-administered OSHA program.
The report contains statistics including federal OSHA and state plan inspection counts, staffing levels, budget figures, and some nifty maps highlighting state-run OSHA programs, those with public-sector only programs, and federal OSHA states.
The bulk of the publication consists of reports from the various state plan states, on topics that may vary from year to year. Some of the most interesting material can be found in the "State Initiatives" section, where you can read about how states have developed creative policies to address topics of concern to the workforce in their state, in an effort to address some of the leading causes of workplace injury and illness. Also, new this year is the scattering of "case studies" throughout the document, which provide a focused look at particular initiatives.
The collection of Grassroots submissions encourages interchange between states, and encourages everyone to do all we can to eliminate workplace injuries.
