2022 OSHA Compliance & Recordkeeping Virtual Master Class

Tuesday, August 16, 2022 — Wednesday, August 17, 2022

12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Eastern / 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Pacific Virtual

Program Length: 8 hours

OSHA announced on January 25 that it is withdrawing the emergency temporary standard (ETS) issued on November 5 and that the U.S. Supreme Court rejected on January 13. But the agency isn’t giving up on efforts to increase vaccination of the nation’s workforce. Instead, OSHA’s announcement says it “is prioritizing its resources to focus on finalizing a permanent COVID-19 Healthcare Standard.”

The ETS—had it been allowed to take effect—would have covered employers with at least 100 employees, estimated to be some 84 million workers across the nation. As a temporary standard, it would have been in effect for six months.

OSHA is allowed to issue an emergency rule quickly without going through all the steps necessary to issue a permanent rule. The ETS’s six-month lifespan would have given the agency time to begin permanent rulemaking. The process requires time-consuming steps that include the issuance of a notice of proposed rulemaking and the setting of a period for interested parties to submit comments.

After the comment period, OSHA would have to review and analyze the comments before issuing a final rule, meaning the process could take several months.

Don’t be caught in OSHA's crosshairs! Join attorney Adele L. Abrams for a live, virtual master class on safety recordkeeping essentials that can be applied to any injury or illness—and any situation, especially the COVID-19 pandemic. Get caught up on the latest changes to OSHA policies and equip yourself with the skills you need to keep your company in continued compliance with these notoriously tricky regulations!

You’ll also discover:

  • What is recordable with respect to COVID-19 and other ailments
  • 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
  • Best practices for completing the OSHA Forms 300, 301, and 300A 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
  • How to train remote workers and supervisors to report and record any work-related illnesses and injuries that occur “on the clock”
  • Documentation related to PPE assessments, medical evaluations, and exposure monitoring results
  • Latest federal OSHA policy on reporting and recording COVID cases, and how state plan states’ requirements may differ under COVID emergency standards
  • OSHA’s new medical records officer position, and what the new rule means for OSHA recordkeeping audits
  • OSHA’s new disclosure of employer e-data, and what that means for employer privacy and contractor prequalification
  • How recordkeeping enforcement is likely to change under the Biden administration

This session will cover the key differences between the underlying purpose and scope of injury/illness recordkeeping and workers’ compensation, when an injury may be recordable but not compensable and vice versa, and more—all in the context of the ongoing crisis that every workplace is dealing with right now: COVID-19.

How OSHA’s Severe Injury Reporting Rule Applies to the COVID-19 Crisis

Employee and Supervisor Training Essentials for Combating OSHA Recordkeeping Mistakes

Given the COVID-19 crisis, many businesses are having to make a tough decision: lay off or furlough the workforce or manage a remote workforce. But just because employees may be working remotely doesn’t mean your OSHA recordkeeping obligations go away. Now more than ever, it’s important for organizations to train supervisors and managers, as well as their entire workforce, on how to comply with workplace safety recordkeeping requirements. This session will provide a framework to follow for proper OSHA recordkeeping training—whether you still have workers at a physical worksite or employees are distributed and working remotely due to the pandemic.

3:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Day 2 Questions and Answers
