OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping remains constant source of questions and inconsistencies to those responsible for this task. Whether it relates to what constitutes OSHA recordability, is it a lost or restricted work day cases, what is medical treatment. These issues persist to 14 years after the effective date of January 1, 2002. Over the years OSHA has issued numerous interpretations, provide guidance and yet the confusion and recordkeeping errors continue to exist.

We must remember that when OSHA shows up at your door to inspect your site as a result of an employee complaint, special emphasis program, fatality, multiple hospitalization etc. the one constant will be that the OSHA Compliance Officer will look at and review your OSHA logs and associated documentation for the current year as well as up to 5 years prior. The importance of recordkeeping is ever getting more important, and the need for accuracy is of prime importance.

In this webinar, we will help you understand the OSHA interpretations, how to evaluate and make the correct decisions, and or review your logs to ensure their accuracy and make the necessary corrections before OSHA responds via citations.

Course Objective:

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.
