Look for OSHA to offer new tools to help employers understand its recordkeeping standard and to conduct their own audits of their records. In a recent speech, agency head John Henshaw reported, "We will be adding more FAQs to our Web site as well as developing a recordkeeping handbook.

"The handbook will be similar to the old 'blue book' except we envision an interactive program at www.osha.gov. We will also make the handbook available on CD-ROM and print a limited number of copies. We will also provide additional training for our staff and increase outreach on recordkeeping."
