On February 11th, Eric J. Conn and Lindsay A. Smith of Conn Maciel Carey’s national OSHA Practice Group delivered a complimentary webinar regarding “OSHA’s New Fatality and Injury Reporting Rule – What We Know Now” as part of the Firm’s 2016 OSHA Webinar Series.
To kick off 2015, OSHA rolled-out a major change to its Fatality & Injury Reporting Rule to require employers to contact OSHA thousands of times more often to report incidents, which means many more inspections. A year into the new reporting regime now, it seemed like the perfect time to take a look at what is being reported to OSHA and what OSHA is doing with all the new reports.
Participants learned about:
- The requirements of OSHA’s new Fatality and Injury Reporting Rule
- Lessons learned about reports that some employers are making that are not required
- Review the data and trends of reports made to OSHA during the first year under the new Reporting Rule
- Evaluate what actions OSHA is taking in response to the various types of reports it is receiving (and not receiving)
The webinar was the second installment of Conn Maciel Carey’s 2016 OSHA Webinar Series. Plan to join us for the remaining complimentary monthly OSHA webinars. To register for the entire 2016 series, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will assist.
Our next event in the Series is scheduled for March 16th, when Eric J. Conn and Amanda Walker will review “OSHA’s PSM Standard & EPA’s RMP Rule: Rulemaking, “Interpretations” and Enforcement.”
