OSHA recently published its final rule for recordkeeping and reporting of work-related injuries and illness data. Effective January 1, 2024, certain employers will be required to record and electronically submit work-related injury and illness data to be in compliance with OSHA’s new recordkeeping and reporting rules. This long-awaited new rule updates the list of employers considered to be in “high-hazard” industries and creates new obligations for some employers. In addition to these changes to the recording and recordkeeping rule, several aspects of OSHA’s prior rule will remain the same.

This webinar will discuss what OSHA’s new rule changes, what requirements will remain unchanged, and OSHA’s intent to make submitted information publicly available. Mr. Vance will also discuss the effects of the new recordkeeping and reporting requirements for employers and what information OSHA will make publicly available from the submitted information. This webinar will provide essential information for employers to ensure that they will be in compliance with OSHA’s new rule.
