Effective Jan. 1, OSHA revised its requirements for recording and submitting records of work-based injuries and illnesses, and enforcement begins Dec. 1. The final rule, which requires employers to electronically submit recorded information for posting on the OSHA web site, affects employers with 250 or more employees, as well as those with 20 to 249 employees classified in 67 specific industries. The final rule also allows OSHA to collect information from employers not required to submit information to the agency on a routine basis. These employers must submit requested data upon written notification from OSHA.

Please join us for this 60-minute webinar, where we will discuss the latest OSHA reporting and record keeping requirements, including the new rule which requires some employers to electronically submit injury and illness data to OSHA for public record.
