OSHA Final Rule on Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses – How You Should Comply

The electronic rule called “Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illness” was finalized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration on May 11, 2016. The final rule is identical to the proposed rule and has two main elements, electronic submission and updates to how employers inform employees to report work-related illness or injuries. The final rule comprises of two effective dates, the more recent effective date being August 10, 2016 for the provisions concerning employee injury reporting policies.

Especially, the OSHA requirements notify employees that they have a right to report a work-related injury and the prohibition from discharging or otherwise discriminating against employees for reporting work-related injuries or illnesses. The requirements relating to the electronic submission of Part 1904 recordkeeping forms will become effective from January 1, 2017.

OSHA reasons that this new rule will ensure enhanced workplace safety for all while establishing better compliance with the OSH Act. It will also make employees more aware of the hazards that can happen in the workplace and will allow researchers to identify injury and illness patterns in certain industries. The reported data accuracy will also improve, with employers putting in more efforts to ensure accuracy and compliance with the OSHA Regulations.

This webinar by our expert speaker Susan Fahey Desmond will cover these new requirements and what this could mean to your organization, how it will impact you, and how to ensure compliance.
