Why Should You Attend:
Those responsible for maintaining filling out and recording injuries and illnesses are often confused by what should and should not be included in the OSHA recordkeeping forms. Over-reporting injuries and illnesses can be as serious as under-reporting injuries and illnesses, and can even lead to uncomfortable OSHA inquiries or even inspections. It is also difficult to know how to accurately account for time lost due to injuries and illnesses, especially in the case of a part-time work force. This webinar will help clarify what should be reported as an injury or illness, as well as how to account correctly for lost work time. Many employers are also confused by which forms should be used to initially report injuries and illness, and those that should be used for submission to OSHA or the proper reporting agency. This session will discuss these and in addition, suggestions will be offered for maintaining confidentiality of the OSHA Injury and Illness data.
