Title:

New OSHA Electronic Injury & Illness Reporting Requirements: Realign Discipline And Drug Testing Policies Before August 10

SKU:WC-1022847
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

Do you have a “reasonable” way for employees to promptly and accurately report workplace illnesses and injuries?

Are you making it clear that employees who report workplace illnesses or injuries won’t be discouraged from reporting or retaliated against for doing so?

You’d better make sure your process takes these questions into account because under OSHA’s final rule on electronic reporting, you’ve only got until August 10, 2016 to devise a reasonable procedure for reporting illnesses and injuries in your workplace.

Additionally, OSHA has said that employers could be fined for drug testing an employee unless it’s likely that substance abuse played a part in the workplace accident and the test reveals an impairment. This raises the important question of when it’s reasonable to initiate a post-accident drug test for someone who reports a workplace injury. Now is the time to ensure that your policy on post-accident drug testing doesn’t spark OSHA scrutiny.

While the electronic submission of injury and illness data portion of the rule goes into effect January 1, 2017, employers need to prepare to comply with the upcoming August 10 effective date of the rule’s provisions on employee information and anti-retaliation.

Join us for a can’t miss webinar with live Q&A. Attorney Adele Abrams, CMSP, will explain your compliance obligations and important provisions included in OSHA’s new reporting policy, ahead of the August 10, 2016 effective date.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
