Top changes to Record, Report & Implement - 2017 OSHA Illness & Injury

Duration :

Course Description:

        On May 12, 2016, a rule by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was published in the Federal Register. Part of the OSHAs final rule on tracking workplace injuries and illnesses will have to be implemented as of November 1, 2016.

Some of the major changes in the new law involve:
  • Modification to 29 CFR part 1904.41 to expand OSHAs legal authority to collect
  • Make available injury and illness information required under part 1904
  • Employers to electronically submit information about workplace injuries and illnesses
  • Bars employers from retaliating against workers for reporting injury and illness
  • Requires employers to inform employees of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses free from retaliation

         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.

         In addition to the recording and reporting requirements, the anti-retaliation provisions of the final rule will impact post-accident drug-testing policies beginning Aug. 10, 2016.
