OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Master Class: Texas

On Site Seminar:
October 16, 2018 | Irving, TX

Recordkeeping is important to a variety of organizational operations, but when it comes to occupational safety and health, it’s required. OSHA’s recordkeeping standards and regulations mandates that companies record occupational injuries and illnesses and report certain incidents to the agency. Aside from OSHA’s Part 1904 requirements, there are many additional recordkeeping and documentation mandates and best practices that, if ignored, can trigger penalties as high as $129,336 per violation. Knowing the important elements of these critical standards is key to an effective safety and health program and to avoid civil and criminal penalties for noncompliance.

This full day program will address issues including:

I. Purpose and overview of OSHA's rule 1904 Recordkeeping and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, including the latest on implementation of Electronic Recordkeeping rule

II. The anti-retaliation provisions of the e-Recordkeeping Rule, and their practical impact on reporting procedures, incentive and discipline programs, worker drug testing and Section 11(c) rights

III. Recent changes to OSHA’s “continuing violation” rule, and pending legislation to amend the OSH Act with respect to enforcement of recordkeeping rules

IV. Regulated Companies and Industries, Temporary Agencies and Union Hiring Halls: Understanding the recordkeeping and reporting requirements that apply to each type of entity, the limited exemptions for small businesses, low-hazard industries, how OSHA recording and workers’ compensation laws interface, and more

V. What is Recordable? The differences between “first aid” and “medical treatment,” how to determine whether an injury or illness is work-related, and more

VI. What is immediately reportable as a Severe Injury, and how to deal with completion of OSHA RRI forms

VII. OSHA 300, 301 and 300A Forms: Who must complete the forms, best practices for completing them correctly, and how to avoid becoming your company’s designated felon
