With OSHA’s new recordkeeping rules employers must notify OSHA of work-related fatalities within eight hours, and work-related in-patient hospitalizations, amputations, or losses of an eye within 24 hours.
Will employers understand how to record this?
OSHA Recordkeeping Simplified by Mark Moran is designed to provide an introduction to assist you in understanding the new recordkeeping requirements, interpretations, and the correct procedures for recording injuries and illnesses of 29 CFR Part 1904.
OSHA Recordkeeping requirements apply to all employers.Well almost everyone… Although small businesses (with 10 or fewer employees) are exempt from most of the injury and illness recording requirements, that small business exemption does not apply to the new reporting requirements.
Though it may seem like a tedious task at times, recording injuries and illnesses is an important function. Not only is accurate recordkeeping required by Federal and State regulations, it can be a valuable way for identifying and preventing safety and health hazards in your facility.
