The Severe Violator Enforcement Program (SVEP), which became effective on June 18, 2010, is intended to focus enforcement efforts on recalcitrant employers who demonstrate indifference to the health and safety of their employees through willful, repeated, or failure-to-abate violations relating to significant hazards.  The SVEP replaced the Enhanced Enforcement Program (EEP), a program also intended to target problematic employers. The EEP’s criteria, broader than the SVEP criteria, also relied on the employer’s compliance history. In 2009, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) audited the EEP and issued a report criticizing the program’s efficiency and effectiveness. The OIG found that OSHA missed a number of EEP-qualifying cases, did not conduct proper follow-up on a majority of EEP-qualifying cases, made little effort to determine if non-compliance existed company-wide where there were multiple locations, and generally did not utilize the enhanced enforcement tools the EEP provided to ensure future compliance.
