OSHA Proposes Injury / Illness Recordkeeping Changes

OSHA has proposed changes that would require employers to report any work-related fatalities and all in-patient hospitalizations within eight hours, and work-related amputations within 24 hours. Reporting amputations is not required under the current regulation.

OSHA also proposes changes to the list of industries partially exempt from the requirements to maintain work-related injury or illness logs. You can learn more with updated resources at the OSHA website (links below).
