OSHA’s New Recordkeeping Standards and Injury Tracking Application

May 2, 2018

The new rule, which took effect Jan. 1, 2017, requires certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness data that they are already required to record on their onsite OSHA Injury and Illness forms. Analysis of this data will enable OSHA to use its enforcement and compliance assistance resources more efficiently.  In this webinar OSHA will share its lessons learned from the initial year of data collection and provide information on planned steps forward.  The rule also prohibits employers from discouraging workers from reporting an injury or illness. The webinar will review these requirements and the guidance materials available on the subject.
