WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: OSHA injury/illness reporting and recordkeeping requirements can be daunting even in normal times, but COVID-19 has further complicated the situation. This presentation will review the obligations for OSHA notification of fatalities and severe injuries and illnesses, and OSHA 300/301 logging requirements that address different scenarios that arise in the workplace. The 2016 revisions requiring e-filing for some employers, confidentiality of information, and the impact of whistleblower protections for injured workers will be discussed. The speaker will also address best practices for documentation and record retention.

Injury and illness recordkeeping is a top pain point for employers. From determining which injuries are recordable to managing electronic submission requirements, avoiding retaliation claims, and creating a reasonable, effective procedure for employees to report injuries, there are many opportunities for missteps. And with OSHA receiving data from employers required to submit records electronically—data that it uses to target enforcement efforts under the Site-Specific Targeting Program—the stakes are higher than ever. Plus, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced a new complication, as employers are faced with determining whether an exposure occurred on or off the job in order to identify recordable cases.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the characteristics that make an injury or illness recordable and the common gray areas that often trip up employers.
  • Ensure that your injury reporting procedure is reasonable according to OSHA’s criteria
  • Determine whether your organization is required to submit data to OSHA electronically
  • Accurately complete your OSHA 300 log, 301 reports, and 300A annual summary
  • Recognize the enforcement risks of injury and illness recordkeeping mistakes and avoid the most common pitfalls
  • Understand OSHA’s recordkeeping policies for COVID-19 cases
