By July 1, 2017, certain employers must electronically submit injury and illness data to OSHA. This means employers will need to understand which work-related injuries and what illnesses are reportable or recordable under OSHA’s 2015 Injury and Illness Recordkeeping Rule, which covers work-related fatalities, hospitalization, amputation, or eye loss.
Failure to submit a complete and accurate record log could result in heavy OSHA penalties and fines up to $125,000, and since last year’s OSHA fine increase of approximately 82%, safety managers and employers are bound to have plenty of questions on the new regulations to avoid injuries and fines, like:
- Which work-related injuries and illnesses need to be reported by facilities subject to OSHA’s 2016 “Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses” final rule?
- Is every injury or illness subject to OSHA’s recordkeeping requirements?
- How is first aid generally defined under OSHA’s rules?
- What about medical treatment?
Knowing the answers to these questions goes a long way toward understanding what’s recordable. Join us on March 30 to learn how to comply with OSHA’s recordkeeping rule and test your knowledge of what’s recordable and what’s not based on the relation to work of the activities at hand.
