OSHA Recordkeeping: What’s Recordable, What’s Reportable

Wednesday, June 28, 2017 at 1pm ET           Duration: 90 minutes

Complying with OSHA recordkeeping regulations is a reality of the job for many safety and HR professionals. The price of getting it wrong is high. Even simple errors can prompt OSHA to start auditing your facility, issuing fines or identifying your company as an “egregious violator.”   (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

This presentation will address what you really need to know about OSHA recordkeeping and reporting regulations, including OSHA 300/301 logs and other mandatory reports. We’ll review how to maintain records in a way that complies with regulatory requirements and minimizes legal liability. You’ll also learn about OSHA’s “immediate reporting” requirement for hospitalizations, amputations and eye loss accidents.

This program is intended for anyone who touches the OSHA record keeping process—including HR professionals, safety managers, and supervisors responsible for recording and reporting employee injuries.

Adele Abrams, Esq. – a nationally recognized expert on workplace safety law – will cover OSHA document retention requirements, document destruction policies, and the distinctions between documents that must be produced during inspections and those that can only be required by subpoena or through litigation discovery.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Participants will get sound legal advice on issues including: 

  • Distinctions between immediately reportable incidents and those that must simply be logged
  • How reporting and recording requirements vary based on where an injury occurs
  • How long mandatory records must be maintained
  • If and when disciplinary records must be shared with OSHA
  • Best practices for documenting training
  • Potential sanctions if records are destroyed following an accident or inspection
  • Reports that must be produced upon OSHAs request during an inspection
