OSHA 300 Recordkeeping in 2016: Avoiding Costly Penalties by Complying with Injury / Illness Requirements - Webinar On-Demand
In January 2015, OSHA added requirements for severe injury and fatality events, and now at the one-year anniversary of the rule’s enactment, safety managers still have many valid concerns about whether they’re meeting the new recordkeeping and reporting requirements.
OSHA takes illness and injury recordkeeping and reporting very seriously, since it relies on the data from employer logs to identify workplace safety and health problems, track solution progress, tailor enforcement programs, focus individual and individual inspection strategies, and efficiently allocate agency resources. OSHA believes that industry grossly under-records injury and illness data, and because of this concern, it is cracking down on recordkeeping enforcement—and tracking down employers they suspect of under- or improperly recording data.
And, the potential penalties can be significant—especially if OSHA uses its egregious penalty process, under which each affected employee would trigger a separate penalty of up to $70,000. Given the complexity of OSHA recordkeeping and regulations, willful or repeat violations are increasingly likely.
