Event Details

Attending this webinar by expert speaker Joe Keenan will give you a clear understanding of your responsibility for the new electronic submittal process and ramifications to the employer.The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has changed elements of the 29 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) 1904 to include electronic submittal of injury and illness data. OSHA believes this is a behavioral economic move to provide a "nudge" to employer to focus on safety. The information for injury and illness will be available publicly and is believed to help accuracy of recordkeeping data.

This rule will be phased into effect within a two-year period with certain high-risk employers being targeted for more frequent reporting than their low-risk counterparts. Whereas, employers with high injury rates will have injury records available for workers, job seekers, customers, researchers, and the general public that will affect the way they do business.

  • Does the rule allow and employer to have an employee incentive program?
  • Does this rule apply to employers in State Plan states?
  • How can employers use this information to improve their own safety record?
  • Who must submit information electronically to OSHA under the final rule?
  • Are the electronic reporting requirements based on the size of the establishment or the size of the firm?
  • When do I have to submit data electronically to OSHA?
  • How should the data be submitted and how long will it take?
  • How will Personally Identifiable Information (PII) be protected?
Why Should you Attend
OSHA has been rushing out a series of proposed amendments to its Injury & Illness Recordkeeping regulations (29 C.F.R. Part 1904). Among them is a new final rule to "Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses," which will require hundreds of thousands of employers to electronically submit their injury and illness logs (and in many instances, their detailed incident reports also) each year. More importantly, for no apparent safety reason, OSHA intends to publish employers' injury data and incident reports online.

Another rule working its way through the rulemaking process: "Continuing Duty to Maintain Up-to-Date and Accurate Injury & Illness Records," would impose a continuing duty on employers to update and maintain accurate injury and illness logs for the entire five year period for which the current regulation requires employers to keep copies of their OSHA 300 logs and related forms. Essentially, this proposal extends OSHA's statute of limitations period during which OSHA is allowed to bring an enforcement action alleging a violation of the recordkeeping standard from six months from the day of the recordable injury to five years.

Participants will learn:
  • Details of OSHA's new final rule to require submission of injury and illness recordkeeping data
  • Requirements of OSHA's proposed rule to extend its recordkeeping statute of limitations
  • Potential impact of these two recordkeeping rules
  • Timing for implementation of both rules
