Pre-conference Workshops—October 7, 2019

Choose an all-day training or AM/PM workshops.

Cal/OSHA Injury & Illness Recordkeeping, Reporting, and Anti-Retaliation Requirements (Full-Day Master Class)
8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (lunch on your own)
Cal/OSHA’s injury and illness recordkeeping standards are a common pain point for many employers in California. From determining which injuries and illnesses must be recorded, to maintaining and updating records properly, to adhering to posting and notification obligations, the rule encompasses a number of complex requirements that many organizations struggle to manage. And with the new federal OSHA electronic recordkeeping requirements that took effect in 2017, the stakes for noncompliance are now higher than ever, as OSHA will have access to a vast amount of establishment-specific data that the agency can use to target enforcement efforts. This full-day intensive training will cover:

  • The purpose and overview of OSHA’s Recordkeeping and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses rule (29 CFR 1904), including the latest on implementation of Electronic Recordkeeping rule
  • The anti-retaliation provisions of the e-Recordkeeping Rule, and their practical impact on reporting procedures, incentive and discipline programs, post-accident drug testing and Section 11(c) rights
  • Recent changes to Cal/OSHA’s “continuing violation” rule, and pending legislation to amend the OSH Act with respect to enforcement of recordkeeping rule
  • 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 recordkeeping and workers’ compensation laws interface, and more
  • What is recordable? The differences between “first aid” and “medical treatment,” how to determine whether an injury or illness is work-related, and more
  • What is immediately reportable as a Severe Injury, and how to deal with Cal/OSHA incident investigations
  • Cal/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
  • Most common Cal/OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping mistakes to avoid, and tips for effective root cause incident analysis to ensure accurate reporting
  • Best practices for non-mandatory records and documentation, including principles of legal privilege for safety audits, consultant recommendations, record retention and destruction policies, under federal and state law
