California: OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Master Class

On Site Seminar:
October 7, 2019 | Los Angeles, CA

Injury and illness recordkeeping is a common pain point among employers nationwide, but California employers have even more requirements and potential liabilities to keep track of. Cal/OSHA and the California State Legislature have recently taken steps toward implementing stricter injury and illness recordkeeping requirements than its federal counterpart, and more may be on the way. Employers in California may now be cited for recordkeeping lapses during the full 5-year record retention period thanks to a rule implemented in response to the overturn of federal OSHA’s Volks rule under the Congressional Review Act. And recently, Cal/OSHA held an advisory meeting to consider whether it should require employers in the state to electronically submit injury and illness data from Cal/OSHA 300 logs and 301 incident reports—requirements that were rescinded at the federal level. It is more critical than ever for employers in California to understand and follow their injury and illness recordkeeping obligations and stay apprised of ongoing rulemaking in this area. 

This full day program will teach safety and HR managers as well as frontline managers and supervisors responsible for managing California-based worksites how to:

  • Recognize whether an injury or illness is recordable
  • Effectively manage Cal/OSHA 300, 301 and 300A Forms—and Avoiding Criminal Penalties
  • Avoid the most common Cal/OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping mistakes
  • Maneuver around compliance pitfalls under 8 CCR 14300—Cal/OSHA’s Recordkeeping and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses rule  
  • Keep up with the latest on implementation of the Electronic Recordkeeping rule
  • Understand the practical impact on reporting procedures, incentive and discipline programs, post-accident drug testing, and Section 11(c) rights
  • Identify how Cal/OSHA recordkeeping requirements differ from federal OSHA’s rules, so your organization stays in legal compliance across the board
  • Avoid Cal/OSHA’s “Continuing Violation” Rule violations across your California-based worksite(s)
  • Effectively deal with Cal/OSHA incident investigations under 8 CCR 342
  • Manage non-mandatory records and documentation
