The New OSHA Recordkeeping Regulations: What You Need to Know Now to Stay Compliant

Duration: 60 minutes

OSHA has finally issued its new regulations for recordkeeping. This program will help you understand the new requirements under OSHA’s revised E-Recordkeeping rule and severe injury reporting requirements. It’s a must for HR, compliance, and safety professionals who need to stay current and informed to keep their organizations in compliance. (more details below)

* Approved for 1.0 recertification credit hour through HRCI & SHRM.


WHY ATTEND

This presentation will cover what you really need to know about the latest developments with OSHA’s E-Recordkeeping rule, which was finalized in January 2019, and mandatory reporting requirements, including OSHA 300/301 logs. We’ll review how to maintain records in a way that minimizes your company’s legal liability. You’ll also learn about OSHA’s “immediate reporting” requirement, and the potential for sanctions arising from retaliation against injured workers.

This program is a must for anyone who touches the OSHA recordkeeping process—including HR professionals, safety managers, and supervisors responsible for recording and reporting employee injuries. The update on the new rule will also address OSHA’s revised policy from October 2018 on safety incentive programs, discipline, and post-injury drug testing.

Adele Abrams, Esq. – a nationally recognized expert on workplace safety law – will cover OSHA E-filing requirements, what must be included on logs in terms of recordable injuries/illnesses, which must be immediately reported to OSHA, and how Section 11(c) protections against whistleblower retaliation have been codified and can now result in penalties of up to $132,598.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Participants will get sound legal advice on issues including:

  • How reporting and recording requirements vary based on the size and NAICS of the employer’s worksite
  • How long mandatory records must be maintained, and when OSHA can issue citations
  • If and when disciplinary records must be shared with OSHA, and how 29 CFR 1904 and Section 11(c) overlap in terms of worker protections
  • Which injuries are likely to trigger inspections, and how OSHA will use the new information submitted electronically for its revamped site-specific targeting program
  • How you can still legally drug test injured workers, and design safety incentive programs, without fear of violating OSHA requirements
