Updated list of injuries that all employers must report to OSHA:
- All work-related fatalities (within 8 hours of learning about the incident)
- All work-related inpatient 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)
Updates to list of industries that are required to keep records.
This list includes:
- Employers with 10 or fewer employees at all times during the previous calendar year. (this isn't an update. They're just confirming the 10 employee rule)
- Establishments in certain low hazard industries as classified by NAICS code. The new list can be found here: https://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/ppt1/RK1exempttable.html
That's the gist of the updates. However, are you unsure about your recordkeeping requirements under OSHA? Here are some copy and pastes from OSHA's to help guide you:
- Covered employers must record all work-related fatalities.
- Covered employers must record all work-related injuries and illnesses that result in days away from work, restricted work or transfer to another job, loss of consciousness or medical treatment beyond first aid (see OSHA's definition of first aid below).
- In addition, employers must record significant work-related injuries or illnesses diagnoses by a physician or other licensed health care professional, even if it does not result in death, days away from work, restricted work or job transfer, medical treatment beyond first aid, or loss of consciousness.
