OSHA’s New Injury & Illness Electronic Reporting Requirements: Your Roadmap To Full Compliance Ahead Of The November 1 Deadline
|Date / Time:
Effective January 1, 2017, large employers and employers in high-hazard industries will need to electronically send OSHA injury and illness data that they’re already required to collect for posting on the agency's website, so the information will be readily available to stakeholders and the public.
OSHA believes that by making this information more available to stakeholders, including present and prospective employees, as well as the public, will result in immediate benefits. For example, employees will be able to use the information to better understand the hazards in their workplace; potential employees will be able to better decide as to where they might want to work based on accident history; and employers may increase the effectiveness of their respective safety programs in order to minimize or eliminate negative publicity.
The final rule also includes provisions that encourage workers to report work-related injuries or illnesses to their employers and prohibit employers from retaliating against workers for making those reports. Enforcement of these provisions begins November 1, 2016. The intention is to encourage complete and accurate reporting. An employer may not retaliate against employees for reporting work-related injuries or illnesses. You’ve only got a few months to prepare, so now is the time to ensure that you’re in full compliance.
Join us when Attorney Michael Segella, the OSHA and Worksite Safety Practice Group chair at Goldberg Segalla, will zero in on the most typical recordkeeping mistakes and give you a tested process for evaluating your company’s existing recordkeeping program to ensure that it’s in full compliance and can withstand a focused OSHA inspection.
