Texas: OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Master Class

On Site Seminar:
April 8, 2019 | Austin, 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.Occupational Injuries and Illnesses

II.Regulated Companies and Industries: Understanding the recordkeeping and reporting requirements that apply to your company and the limited exemptions for small businesses, low-hazard industries, and more

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

IV. OSHA 300 Forms: Who must complete the forms and best practices for completing them correctly

V. Which establishments must electronically submit injury and illness data? What data must be submitted? Why does OSHA want this data?

VI. What is Reportable? The types of injuries that must be reported to OSHA and when, reasonable procedures for employees reporting work-related injuries and illnesses, and what information should employees provide about an incident.

VII.Most common OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping mistakes to avoid

VIII.Scenarios: when are certain types of instances recordable, such as those involving horseplay or significant aggravation, occurring during time off, and more
