OSHA’s New Record Keeping Rules

Work Injury Records

There have been two key changes to OSHA’s record keeping rules effective January 1, 2015.  The rule updates the list of industries that are exempt from reporting injury and illness records due to low occupational and injury rates and expands the list of severe work-related injuries that all covered employees MUST report to OSHA.  The rule retains the current requirement to report all fatalities within 8 hours and adds to the requirement to report all work -related in-patient hospitalizations, amputations and loss of an eye within 24 hours to OSHA.

See: Records

The rule updates are to help the agency focus its efforts more effectively to prevent fatalities and serious work related injuries and illnesses.

If you or someone you know has had a serious work injury, you should consult a workers compensation attorney to ensure your rights are protected.

  1. I work in a chemical factory and it’s risky to deal with the hazardous acids, so I felt deeply upset when one of my colleagues was badly injured while working. Then, we decided to submit an application for industrial injury compensation for the worker who had to suffer a lot due to reaction of chemicals.
