In early September, the Occupational Safety Administration (OSHA) announced one last rule that has to have employers to notify OSHA within eight hours after a member of staff is killed at work. The rule also requires notification within 1 day when an employee suffers a work-related hospitalization, amputation or diminished watch.
The prior regulations only required notification of work-related fatalities and inpatient hospitalizations of several employees.
OSHA has updated their list of industries which have been exempt with the requirement to regularly keep injury and illness records. The industries are exempt on account of having relatively low occupational injury and illness rates.
Information on the brand new requirements additionally, the set of exempt industries can be obtained at www.osha.gov/recordkeeping2019.
