Injury and illness recordkeeping is a perennial pain point for employers, and the past several years have seen numerous changes to an already confusing regulation. Under OSHA’s injury and illness recordkeeping rule at 29 CFR Part 1904, most employers are required to maintain records of work-related injuries and illnesses their employees incur.

These requirements are not new by any means, but many organizations still struggle to understand and apply all the nuances of the standard when it comes to determining whether a case is recordable, how to record injuries and illnesses that affect contractors and temporary workers, and how OSHA’s requirements overlap with and diverge from state workers’ compensation laws, to name just a few of the many common points of confusion. And with recent changes due to COVID-19, mistakes can be more costly than ever before.

Consider that since the start of the coronavirus pandemic through December 31, 2020, OSHA issued citations from 300 inspections for violations related to COVID-19 which resulted in proposed penalties totaling $3,930,381. And don’t forget that after January 15, 2021, OSHA’s maximum penalties for serious and other-than-serious violations increased from $13,494 per violation to $13,653 per violation. The maximum penalty for willful or repeated violations also increased from $134,937 per violation to $136,532 per violation.

While COVID-19 has been top of mind over the last 18 months, safety professionals can’t forget about all the other facets of OSHA recordkeeping and compliance. By the end of this virtual training, you’ll understand safety recordkeeping essentials that can be applied to any injury or illness—and any situation.
