Recordkeeping is important to a variety of organizational operations, but when it comes to safety, it’s required. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) recordkeeping standard mandates that companies record occupational injuries and illnesses and report certain incidents to the agency. Knowing the important elements of the standard is key to an effective safety program and to avoid steep penalties for non-compliance.

And in the wake of COVID-19, remaining in compliance should be top of mind for all safety and HR professionals. Last fall, OSHA published guidance to help employers apply the agency’s existing injury and illness recording and reporting requirements to the coronavirus. And the agency recently issued new guidance for employers who require workers to get the COVID-19 vaccine. According to OSHA, employers are now tasked with reporting any adverse reactions to the vaccine in their OSHA 300 workplace illness logs.

While the pandemic may be slowing down, OSHA recordkeeping and reporting will always be here to stay! Attend our 2-day, interactive and educational event that will offer you a unique learning experience to help you advance your career and keep your organization in compliance with the various laws.
