OSHA Issues New Reporting Requirements
Starting January 1, 2015, businesses covered by federal OSHA will have to notify the agency of on-the-job worker fatalities and work-related hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye, according to a new final rule.
Fatalities have to be reported within eight hours; a hospitalization, amputation, or eye loss incident, within 24 hours. Previously, employers were required to inform OSHA of workplace deaths and of in-patient hospitalizations of three or more employees.
Employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, including those who are exempt from keeping injury and illness records, are mandated to follow OSHA’s new rule. They can send their notices via phone, site visit to an OSHA area office, or through an electronic form.
