OSHA’s SVEP Program

Wednesday, December 21, 2022 1:30 PM (PST)
OSHA’s Severe Violator Enforcement Program (SVEP) is an enforcement program intended to direct its enforcement resources at employers whom OSHA believes are “indifferent to their OSH Act obligations.” Employers who “qualify” for SVEP by being accused of committing Willful or Repeat violations in certain categories face a heavy dose of public shaming, but more importantly, will receive a heavy dose of OSHA inspections at the same and related facilities throughout the organization. The SVEP also includes a harsh and difficult “exit criteria,” so once you check in, you may never leave.
