Operational Procedure Notices

An Operational Procedure Notice (OPN) is a state-specific OSHNC operating procedure which may clarify or replace a federal OSHA compliance directive (CPL). An OPN may also be written in the absence of a federal OSHA compliance directive.

These documents were originally used as temporary operating procedures until the Field Operations Manual (FOM) was updated. The FOM was updated to include most of the OPNs in 2000. At that time many of the existing OPNs were canceled. The FOM is now maintained in electronic format, therefore updates to permanent operating procedures are made directly to the FOM in lieu of creating new OPNs. The OPNs listed below are special emphasis programs or temporary operating procedures.

To be certain you have the most current OPN, please check this page frequently or bookmark this page for use instead of printing each document. The title is linked to the document. Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 may be necessary to view these files.
