    From the 2009 manual's introduction:

    "This Instruction implements the Field Operations Manual (FOM), and replaces OSHA Instruction CPL 02-00-103, Field Inspection Reference Manual (FIRM),issued September 26, 1994. This Instruction also replaces two of the three remaining parts of the prior Field Operations Manual (CPL 02-00-045) that are still in effect. The one remaining part, the chapter on Disclosure, will be added at a later date. This FOM is a revision of OSHA’s enforcement policies and procedures as stated in the FIRM, which provides the field offices a reference document for identifying the responsibilities associated with the majority of their inspection duties."
