OSHA requires that businesses maintain a running account of injuries and illnesses that occur in the workplace. The logs must be completely and accurately filled in and completed. These figures must be reported to OSHA or other report collection agencies each year. Although not a recommended practice, some businesses use these figures as a measure of the success or failure of their safety programs. Over reporting injuries and illnesses or under reporting such numbers can result in problems, both internally in a company, as well as with the regulatory agency. Accurate reporting is imperative, and is a good tool to use in determining problem areas in the company’s business operation.
This course will detail what constitutes first aid v. medical treatment. It will demonstrate the forms used to collect data and how they are used. Examples of various workplace injuries and illnesses will be presented highlighting the importance of keeping good records. How to maintain the records and the requirements to have written documentation of programs such as a light duty policy. The course will also discuss how to collect data, how to use the data and how to analyze the data once collected.
Those responsible for maintaining filling out and recording injuries and illnesses are often confused by what should and should not be included in the OSHA recordkeeping forms. Over-reporting injuries and illnesses can be as serious as under-reporting injuries and illnesses, and can even lead to (uncomfortable) OSHA inquiries or (even) inspections. It is also difficult to know how to accurately account for time lost due to injuries and illnesses, especially in the case of a part-time work force. This webinar will help clarify what should be reported as an injury or illness, as well as how to account correctly for lost work time.
Many employers are also unsure about which forms should be used to initially report injuries and illness, and those that should be used for submission to OSHA or the proper reporting agency. This session will discuss these issues and will give some suggestions for maintaining any required confidentiality of the OSHA Injury and Illness data.
In addition, there have been recent changes in the OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping requirements that every business owner must know and must comply with.
