Explore the Many Facets of Changes in OSHA’s Final Rule for Record Keeping of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses.

Did you know about OSHA’s latest record keeping regulation of which certain provisions went into effect December 1, 2016 and other provisions will be in effect as of January 1, 2017? 

What is this latest new rule by OSHA?  The new rule involves modification to 29 CFR part 1904.41 to expand OSHA's legal authority to collect and make available injury and illness information required under part 1904 to the public. The rule requires that employers in certain industries electronically submit data, which they are required to keep under existing OSHA regulations, to OSHA injury and illness.

The frequency and content of these establishment-specific submissions is set out in the final rule and is dependent on the size and industry of the employer. But that is not the changes this rule offers. There is much more employers and employees need to know besides just the title of the new standard.

This new rule expands OSHA approach of “reasonable” procedures with respect to reporting of illnesses and injuries, disciplinary action of late reporting of illnesses and injuries, incentive programs, whistleblower responsibility and post-accident drug testing. The rule has major implications for employers regarding these topics that are causing many employer’s to revise their procedures. 

You will not want to miss out on this webinar to learn how. This webinar by expert speaker, Michael Aust, CECM, MS, Authorized OSHA Outreach Instructor, will discuss the specifics of the rule in an easily to follow process. In this webinar program, you will learn how to identify and comply with the compliance schedule and forthcoming changes that go into effect in 2019.

Why Should You Attend:

It’s important that you attend this informative webinar because OSHA is now going to determine if an employer’s written procedures are “reasonable” or not when it comes to:

  • Employees reporting injury and illnesses within a timely manner
  • Disciplinary action to employee for late reporting of injury or illness
  • Incentive programs tied to OSHA “Recordability”
  • Post-Accident Drug Testing blanket approach for all injuries and illnesses

There are also changes in the Whistleblower Protection rules. OSHA can write a citation against an employer for violation of 11C without an employee filing a charge of retaliation.
