OSHA Recordkeeping: What’s Recordable, What’s Reportable

Duration: 60 minutes

Even simple record-keeping errors can prompt OSHA to audit your facility, issue fines or classify your company as an “egregious violator.” That’s why it’s critical for HR, compliance, and safety professionals to stay current, informed, and ready to meet the requirements of these federal regulations.

WHY ATTEND

This presentation will cover what you really need to know the latest on OSHA recordkeeping regulations and mandatory reporting requirements, including OSHA 300/301 logs. We’ll review how to maintain records in a way minimizes your company’s legal liability. You’ll also learn about OSHA’s “immediate reporting” requirement.

This program is necessary for anyone who touches the OSHA recordkeeping process—including HR professionals, safety managers, and supervisors responsible for recording and reporting employee injuries.
