Revised OSHA Injury Reporting Requirements

Guest post by Jordy Byrd
OSHA has new serious occupational injury and illness recordkeeping requirements. Are you ready?

Effective January 1, 2015, employers in more than two dozen industries will now be required to maintain OSHA 300 Logs. This update was established in order to transition from Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes to a new North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes.

Newly regulated businesses with more than 10 employees in some industries will now be required to keep injury and illness records so that OSHA can better understand industry hazards, implement worker protections, and reduce accidents. Select businesses are partially exempt from OSHA recordkeeping requirements.

All employers, regardless of size or industry, are required to report all fatal work-related injuries within eight hours. Amputations, eye loss incidents, and inpatient hospitalizations must be reported within 24 hours. Find out if you are required to maintain records under the updated rule.
