Florida: OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Master Class

On Site Seminar:
Wednesday, May 13, 2020 | Orlando, FL

OSHA’s injury and illness recordkeeping standards are a common pain point for many employers. 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 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 intensive 1-day master class 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 the Electronic Recordkeeping rule
  • The antiretaliation 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
  • Recent changes to OSHA’s “continuing violation” rule and pending legislation to amend the OSH Act with respect to enforcement of recordkeeping rules
  • 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 completion of OSHA RRI forms
  • 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 OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping mistakes to avoid and tips for effective root cause incident analysis to ensure accurate reporting
  • Best practices for nonmandatory records and documentation, including principles of legal privilege for safety audits, consultant recommendations, record retention, and destruction policies

*BLR is carefully monitoring the COVID-19 situation and reviewing recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). This masterclasss is scheduled to be held as planned and we look forward to welcoming you to Florida.
