OSHA Electronic Recordkeeping Update & Controlling Fall Exposures

OSHA Electronic Recordkeeping Update & Controlling Fall Exposures

September 19, 2017 – Two-topic webinar on OSHA Compliance: Rule Updates.

OSHA 300 Electronic Recordkeeping Update:

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) final rule, which took effect January 1, 2017, requires certain employers covered by the recordkeeping regulation to electronically submit injury and illness information from OSHA Forms 300, 300A, and 301.

Confusion and delays have surrounded the rule’s implementation, including a revised deadline for electronic reporting and a security breach of OSHA’s new injury tracking application (ITA).

During the webinar, we will provide an update on the electronic recordkeeping rule and cover the following:

  • How to locate and utilize the OSHA ITA for entering electronic illness and injury records.
  • The need for continuing to track OSHA recordable injuries and illnesses, and when direct reporting of certain injuries is required.
  • Future OSHA timelines for submitting illness and injury records for those businesses who fall under the rule requirements.

Controlling Slip, Trip & Fall Exposures:

On January 17, 2017, an OSHA final rule updating standards regarding walking-working surfaces went into effect. The final rule aims to better protect workers from slips, trips, and falls, while also increasing consistency between the general and construction industry fall protection standards.

During the webinar, we will outline the final rule and review:

  • How to identify and control exposures with a review of common factors contributing to slips, trips, and falls.
  • Surface friction measurements as well as designated areas, including how to label these areas properly.
  • Equipment requirements and outline best practices for avoiding slips, trips, and falls.
