While the US Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) oversees some 7.2 million American businesses, its 1,100 inspectors normally inspect only a small fraction of this number annually -- usually less than 40,000. Of that number, less than one inspection in five is directed at the manufacturing sector. The actual number of manufacturing inspections in 2006 was 7,689. Manufacturing workplaces in the 26 states with complementary OSHA programs are more likely to be inspected -- a total of 9,964 were in 2006. The brunt of OSHA activity is aimed at the construction industry, which accounts for some 59% of all workplace inspections. OSHA's overall statistics for inspections conducted, violations detected, and fines levied are impressive.
