Do you have a good safety ethic? This class will help you to extend that safety culture into the reporting and recordkeeping process. Does your organization have a published safety program? This course will teach you to record incidents beyond first aid. Do you keep good track of reportable incidents? This session will enable you to develop a bookkeeping system to keep track of incidents. This class will teach you what incidents are reportable to OSHA within the prescribed time frame.
Why Should You Attend:
Those responsible for maintaining filling out and recording injuries and illnesses are often confused by what should and should not be included in the OSHA recordkeeping forms. Over-reporting injuries and illnesses can be as serious as under-reporting injuries and illnesses, and can even lead to uncomfortable OSHA inquiries or even inspections. It is also difficult to know how to accurately account for time lost due to injuries and illnesses, especially in the case of a part-time workforce. While there seems to be a general understanding of the OSHA injury and illness reporting and recording criteria, many struggles with applying it to real-world situations.
Many employers are also confused by which forms should be used to initially report injuries and illness, and those that should be used for submission to OSHA or the proper reporting agency. This session will discuss these and in addition, suggestions will be offered for maintaining the confidentiality of the OSHA Injury and Illness data. The date by which certain employers are required to submit to OSHA the information from their completed 2018 form 300A is July 1, 2019.
