On September 12, 2017, Eric J. Conn and Dan C. Deacon of Conn Maciel Carey’s national OSHA Practice presented a webinar regarding the Latest on OSHA’s Electronic Recordkeeping and Anti-Retaliation Rule.
OSHA’s controversial Electronic Injury and Illness Recordkeeping data submission rule, along with new Anti-Retaliation elements, has thus far survived a barrage of negative stakeholder comments during the rulemaking, multiple enforcement deferrals and delays of effective dates, and legal challenges complete with preliminary injunction motions. As of today, all elements of the rule are still in effect, including limits on post-injury drug testing and safety incentive programs, and barring a change before December 1, 2017, hundreds of thousands of workplaces will, for the first time, submit injury and illness recordkeeping data to OSHA, possibly for publishing online.
During this webinar, participants learned:
Requirements of OSHA’s Electronic Injury Recordkeeping data submission
Status of the requirement to submit injury and illness data to OSHA, and the new online portal to receive injury and illness data
How the various State OSH Programs are handling E-Recordkeeping
The Anti-Retaliation Elements of the E-Recordkeeping Rule
The status and future of the full Electronic Recordkeeping Rule
