New Rules Released

There are changes to the OSHA Injury Recordkeeping Standard - some effective in 2016, others in 2017 - that will have a major impact on most employers. These changes include the requirement to send your injury data electronically to OSHA.

This audio conference covers both the new changes as well as the standard recordkeeping requirements such as what needs to be recorded and what forms and deadlines are imposed.

This training session is particularly important in light of OSHA's new requirements to electronically submit your injury data to OSHA every year.

Learning Objectives

This session will help you understand not only what information you must track, but what you must send to OSHA and when. By attending, you will learn:
  • What needs to be recorded – and what forms to use
  • Requirements of the new electronic reporting of injury data
  • Phase-in dates for the new requirement
  • The rules regarding location, retention, and maintenance of records
  • How to identify work-related incidents & the general reporting criteria
  • A simple process to determine when an injury needs to be documented
  • Pre-existing conditions and how they might impact recordkeeping
  • The latest recordkeeping interpretations from OSHA
  • How to avoid the #1 OSHA recordkeeping violation
  • Definitions of first aid, medical treatment, and work relationship
  • Which OSHA forms must be made available to employees
  • Dealing with injuries of independent contractors & temporary workers
  • Understanding the difference between "reporting" an injury and "recording" an injury
OSHA imposes a broad range of recordkeeping requirements, from forms to notifications and more. And though you may thoroughly comply with OSHA standards, if you are not in full compliance with its recordkeeping regulations, your company can still end up paying thousands of dollars in fines. So don't pay costly fines, attend this training session to be certain of your requirements.
