OSHA Recordkeeping 2014: An Annual Opportunity

Published on

Each year 180,000 organizations send data to the BLS on injuries and illnesses that occurred at their workplace. If an organization's rate of incidence is higher than the national average, they can be targeted* for an inspection. OSHA's latest proposed rule intends to change how records are provided to OSHA while simultaneously adding an additional 260,000 organizations as required to report their incident performance. Therefore, it is vital that organizations ensure the records they maintain now and in the future are accurate, and that they learn about how OSHA's proposed rule may impact their organization.
