2015 Injury & Illness Reporting

December 2, 2014

Upcoming Changes to OSHA Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements
On January 1, 2015, a final rule from the US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will take effect that will change the current injury and illness reporting and recordkeeping requirements. This new rule adds to the number of situations in which employers must notify OSHA of injuries and illnesses as well as modifying the list of low-hazard industries that are exempt from the annual recordkeeping requirements for illness and injuries.
