OSHA injury/illness reporting and recordkeeping requirements can be daunting even in normal times, but COVID-19 has further complicated the situation. This presentation will review the obligations for OSHA notification of fatalities and severe injuries and illnesses, and OSHA 300/301 logging requirements that address different scenarios that arise in the workplace.
Injury and illness recordkeeping are perennial pain points for employers. From determining whether a case is work-related to distinguishing between first aid and medical treatment to complying with electronic reporting requirements, there are always areas of uncertainty. The COVID-19 pandemic adds another complication, as employers must keep up with OSHA’s latest guidance on when and how to record COVID-19 cases and understand how to make tricky work-relatedness determinations about COVID-19 cases depending on industry risks, level of community transmission, and other variables.
With OSHA’s electronic recordkeeping rule fully in effect, the stakes are now higher than ever. Willful or repeat violations could now cost your company up to $132,598, and OSHA’s Site-Specific Targeting Program uses injury and illness data to target employers for programmed inspections based on higher-than-average injury rates and failure to submit electronic records if required to do so.
