Updates to osha s recordkeeping and reporting rule1

Updates to OSHA’s Recordkeeping and Reporting Rule

www.osha.gov

OSHA has expandedthe list of severe injuries & illnesses that employers must report & updated the list of industries who are partially exempt from routinely keeping OSHA records.

"OSHA will now receive crucial reports of fatalities and severe work-related injuries and illnesses that will significantly enhance the agency’s ability to target our resources to save lives and prevent further injury and illness. This new data will enable the agency to identify the workplaces where workers are at the greatest risk and target our compliance assistance and enforcement resources accordingly."

— Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, Dr. David Michaels

For workplaces under Federal OSHA jurisdiction

  • Final rule becomes effective January 1, 2015

    For workplaces in State Plan States

  • States encouraged to implement new coverage provisions on January 1, 2015, or as soon after as possible.

  • Check with your State Plan for their implementation date of the new requirements.


Expanded reporting requirements

The rule expands the list of severe work-related injuries and illnesses that all covered employers must report to OSHA.

Starting January 1, employers must report the following to OSHA:

  • All work-related fatalities within 8 hours (same as current requirement)

  • All work-related in-patient hospitalizations of one or more employees within 24 hours

  • All work-related amputations within 24 hours

  • All work-related losses of an eye within 24 hours

  • If the injury or illness resulted in a fatality, hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye, report to OSHA.

  • If you are in an industry covered by OSHA’s updated recordkeeping requirements, also make a record of the injury or illness in the OSHA 300 Log.

We believe the updated reporting requirements are not simply paperwork, but have a life-saving purpose: They will enable employers to prevent future injuries by identifying & eliminating the most serious workplace hazards.

Soon we will be able to engage with employers not just through inspections, but through outreach to fix hazards before they become fatal.

How can employers report to OSHA?

  • By telephone to the nearest OSHA office during normal business hours.

  • By telephone to the 24-hour OSHA hotline (1-800-321-OSHA or 1-800-321-6742).

  • Online: OSHA is developing a new means of reporting events electronically, which will be available soon at www.osha.gov/report_online.

Industry exemptions

  • The rule alsoupdates the list of industries that are partially exempt from the requirement to routinely keep OSHA injury & illness records (e.g. the OSHA 300 log), due to relatively low occupational injury & illness rates.

  • The new rule retains the exemption for any firm with ten or fewer employees, regardless of their industry classification, from the requirement to routinely keep records.

  • Reminder: All employers, even those exempt from recordkeeping requirements, must report a work-related fatality, in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye to OSHA.

Industry exemptions

  • The previous list of exempt industries was based on the old Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system, as well as injury & illness data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) from 1996, 1997 & 1998.

  • The new list is based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), as well as BLS data from 2007, 2008& 2009.

Finding your industry code (NAICS)

If I have not previously been required to keep records, do I need to start keeping records?

  • First find your NAICS code at www.census.gov/eos/www/naics
