Top OSHA Recordkeeping Mistakes of 2017: How to Interpret What’s Recordable and Avoid Costly Citations - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with OSHA’s recordkeeping requirements and minimize the risk of making costly errors.



ALERT: OSHA has increased authority to fine your company if it uncovers safety and health recordkeeping violations. In August 2016, OSHA’s penalties skyrocketed 78 percent, and on January 13, 2017, penalties were again increased over 1 percent. Penalties for posting, serious, or other-than-serious violations are now up to $12,675. Willful or repeat violations could now cost your company up to $126,749. 

The new penalties are especially significant if OSHA uses its egregious penalty process, under which your company can be assessed a separate penalty for each affected employee. Given the complexity of OSHA recordkeeping and regulations, the threat of a willful or repeat violation is a real possibility for safety managers.

One of the best ways to avoid and address mistakes is take a close look at where the typical and most likely mistakes occur, which is best accomplished by reviewing past OSHA citations and violations. Armed with this information, you can perform an in-house review and also incorporate the findings into your reporting and recordkeeping program. Additionally, understanding what OSHA typically looks for during an audit can also be of significant benefit.

Use this widely popular on-demand webinar on the top OSHA recordkeeping mistakes to avoid, so you can minimize legal risks under OSHA’s recently enacted penalty provisions.
