Procedure to Complete Table 3 Determination of Facility Representative Coverage
List each facility or groups of facilities for which Facility Representative coverage is desired, according to the facility's

HIGH: Facilities that daily to weekly involve activities with one or more hazards.
MEDIUM: Facilities that weekly to monthly involve activities with one or more hazards.
LOW: Facilities that monthly to quarterly involve activities with one or more hazards.
