Overview

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is ramping up for changes to its electronic recordkeeping rule for 2022, and also has revised policies on recording and reporting of COVID-19 cases. On top of that, OSHA is also enhancing whistleblower protections associated with reporting of injuries, hazards, and other protected activities, and focusing attention on the criminal sanctions possible for falsification of mandatory records.

Furthermore, legislation is also pending that would reinstitute the Obama administration’s “continuing violation” rule for recordkeeping errors and omissions. Meanwhile, OSHA penalties continue to increase with a new $700,000 maximum possible. Don’t be caught in OSHA’s crosshairs! Join attorney Adele L. Abrams for a live, virtual master class on safety recordkeeping essentials that can be applied to any injury or illness—and any situation, especially the COVID-19 pandemic.

You’ll also discover:

  • What is recordable with respect to COVID-19 and other ailments?
  • The differences between “first aid” and “medical treatment,” how to determine whether an injury or illness is work-related, and more
  • What is immediately reportable as a Severe Injury and how to deal with completion of OSHA RRI forms
  • Best practices for completing the OSHA Forms 300, 301, and 300A and how to avoid becoming your company’s designated felon
  • Most common OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping mistakes to avoid and tips for effective root cause incident analysis to ensure accurate reporting
  • Best practices for nonmandatory records and documentation, including principles of legal privilege for safety audits, consultant recommendations, record retention, and destruction policies
  • How to train remote workers and supervisors to report and record any work-related illnesses and injuries that occur “on the clock”
  • Documentation related to PPE assessments, medical evaluations, and exposure monitoring results
  • Latest federal OSHA policy on reporting and recording COVID cases, and how state plan states’ requirements may differ under COVID emergency standards
  • OSHA’s new medical records officer position, and what the new rule means for OSHA recordkeeping audits
  • OSHA’s new disclosure of employer e-data, and what that means for employer privacy and contractor prequalification
  • How recordkeeping enforcement is likely to change under the Biden administration
