OSHA CHANGES RECORDKEEPING AND REPORTING RULES!!!!

Federal OSHA has made a change in the rules regarding recordkeeping and reporting. In states covered by Federal OSHA, the rules go into effect on January 15, 2015. IN IOWA THE DATE IS JANUARY 14, 2015. The change affects recordkeeping by expanding the types of businesses in low-hazard activities. The only “low-hazard” activity on the list remotely close to construction is “Building material and supplies dealers.” By getting on this list employers involved in this type of business don’t have to keep yearly statistics on work related injuries.
