OSHA's Recordkeeping Posting Required on February 1: Are You Ready?

Webinar
Date and Time
1.26.16

This webinar was originally presented on January 26, 2016. 

OSHA’s recordkeeping standard requires all non-exempt employers to post their 300A Summaries for each establishment for three (3) months starting February 1. OSHA reviewed its standard on occupational injury and illness recordkeeping and reporting requirement and the revisions became effective on January 1, 2015. The revised rule on recordkeeping dramatically increased employers’ reporting requirements.  In a surprise move, OSHA also announced that the information obtained from these new reporting requirements would be made public on OSHA’s web site.

Unfortunately, a significant number of employers are not aware of all the changes to the recordkeeping standard. Many employers think their OSHA recordkeeping logs and procedures are fully compliant, only to learn after an OSHA inspection and, in some cases, hundreds of thousands of dollars in penalties, that they were not.  Under OSHA’s recordkeeping regulation, covered employers are required to prepare and maintain logs for serious occupational injuries and illnesses as well fatalities, using the OSHA 300 log.

With OSHA’s expanded view of recordkeeping, particularly applicable to the use of temporary employees, every employer who is inspected by OSHA can anticipate that the inspector will review all their 300 logs for the past five years as part of any inspection.

This webinar, presented by Edwin G. Foulke, Jr., co-chair of the Workplace Safety and Catastrophe Management Practice Group at Fisher Phillips and former Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA, will examine the many recordkeeping pitfalls that employers face, especially those dealing with temporary employees and multiple locations. The program will cover how to coordinate your injury and illness recordkeeping with other recordkeeping requirements and how employers can effectively use recordkeeping to improve their current safety and health management program.  In addition, the webinar will examine in detail the changes made by the revised rule and, in particular, the increased employer reporting requirements for all employers.
