Bart White, Engineering Technician, Marathon Oil Company:
"I would like to take the time to tell you what a great product and service you have with the DynaComm Employee Communication poster program...As the facilitator of our safety program, I really appreciate the overall value of the program. The monthly billing is easy on the pocket book and the option to own the poster boards after three years is a big plus."
Under the OSHA Recordkeeping regulation (29 CFR 1904), covered employers are required to prepare and maintain records of serious occupational injuries, illnesses and fatalities. This information is important for employers, workers, and OSHA in evaluating the safety of a workplace, understanding industry hazards, and implementing worker protections to reduce and eliminate those hazards.
Who Is Affected by the Changes?
On September 11, 2014, OSHA released updates to its recordkeeping and reporting rule. These revisions, which went into effect Jan. 1, 2015, impact all employers under federal OSHA jurisdiction. The revised rule:
1. Updates the list of industries that are exempt from the requirement to routinely keep OSHA injury and illness records due to relatively low occupational injury and illness rates. This new list is based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) and injury and illness data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The list retains the already in place exemption for any establishment with 10 or fewer employees, regardless of industry classification, from the recordkeeping requirement.
2. Expands the list of severe work-related injuries and illnesses that all covered employers must report to OSHA. Specifically, all employers must now report:
- Work-related fatalities (within 8 hours)
- Work-related inpatient hospitalizations, amputations, and eye losses (within 24 hours)
