On November 14, 2017, Eric J. Conn and Lindsay A. DiSalvo of Conn Maciel Carey’s national OSHA Practice Group presented a webinar regarding “OSHA’s Fatality, Hospitalization & Amputation Reporting Rule.“
In former President Obama’s second term, his Administration rolled-out a major change to OSHA’s Fatality & Significant Injury Reporting Rule. Not to be confused with the new Electronic Recordkeeping Rule (which requires certain employers to submit injury and illness data to OSHA on annual basis), this amended rule required all employers to make prompt phone calls to OSHA when work related fatalities or covered in-patient hospitalizations and amputations occur.
The rule has resulted in thousands more reports of incidents to OSHA than before. Now, three years into the new reporting scheme, we have learned a lot of lessons about what is being reported to OSHA, what non-mandatory reports are often made, and what OSHA is doing with all the new reported incidents.
During this webinar, participants learned:
- Nuances of OSHA’s Fatality & Serious Injury Reporting Rule
- Common Reporting Mistakes and Misunderstandings
- Data and trends of reports made to OSHA
- Actions OSHA is taking in response to injury reports
For more background, check out several Conn Maciel Carey articles about the nuances of the rule:
