Are You Prepared for the New OSHA Recordkeeping Requirements? - Members-Only Webinar

July 19, 2016

11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Webinar

Presented by:  Troy Porter, Master Builders of Iowa - Des Moines, IA

On May 11, 2016, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration finalized a recordkeeping and reporting rule to modernize injury data collection to better inform workers, employers, the public, and OSHA about workplace hazards.  These new requirements become effective August 10, 2016, and as of January 1, 2017, contractors will be required to submit information to OSHA annually.

Currently, OSHA requires employers to keep a record of work-related injuries and illnesses.  Under the new rule, employers will be required to send OSHA injury and illness data, that employers are already collecting, for posting on the agency’s website, omitting any personally identifiable information.  Using data collected under the new rule, OSHA will create a public database on work injuries and illnesses.
This members only webinar will provide insight into the new rule, a guide to contractor recordkeeping obligations, and OSHA recordkeeping best practices.
