Nothing Says Christmas Like a New OSHA Reg.

Mon, December 22, 2014 12:56 PM | Mary Speed Lynch (Administrator)

Mark Nix of HBASC sent an OSHA update today. 

New OSHA Reporting requirements beginning January 1, 2015

With the New Year Comes New Reporting Requirements

Beginning Jan. 1, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will require employers to report all work-related fatalities within eight hours and all in-patient hospitalizations, amputations and losses of an eye within 24 hours of being notified of the incident. In the past, employers only reported all workplace fatalities and when three or more workers were hospitalized in the same incident. Since September's announcement of its new requirements, OSHA has conducted extensive outreach to help employers understand the new standards. The agency recently held its first-ever Twitter chat on the subject, answering questions and directing the broader worker safety audience to useful resources.
