A primary component of the program is Priority Enforcement Cases (PEC). A PEC is defined as any inspection that meets one or more of the following criteria at the time the citation is issued:

Any fatality inspection in which OSHA finds that a willful violation of a standard caused the death of an employee will, in addition to being subject to these PEC procedures, also be considered for criminal referral under section 17(e) of the Act.
