OSHA 300 Recordkeeping: How to Avoid Costly Injury and Illness Recordkeeping Mistakes
Webinar Rebroadcast: Friday, February 24, 2017
1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific
Big changes to OSHA’s recordkeeping and reporting regulations—and the skyrocketing fines for non-compliance—should be very concerning to safety managers.
OSHA’s new penalty schedule became effective in August 2016 and the maximum for posting, serious and other than serious violations has increased from $7000 per violation to $12,471. Willful or repeated violation penalties have increased from $70,000 to $124,709.
The new penalties are significant especially if OSHA uses its egregious penalty process—each affected employee would trigger a separate penalty. And, because of the complexity of OSHA recordkeeping and regulations, a willful or repeat violation is a real possibility. Given the high stakes for injury and illness recordkeeping non-compliance, it’s important to closely examine the most frequent common OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping mistakes, so you can determine if your organization is at risk for being cited.
