On July 29, 2015, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) proposed a rule which aims to clarify employers’ continuing duty to create and keep an accurate record of work-related illnesses and injuries. The rule was issued in response to the Court of Appeals’ AKM LLC v. Secretary of Labor decision seeking OSHA’s clarification. It revises the recordkeeping regulations elucidating employers’ recordkeeping duty as an ongoing obligation for five years.
Key amendments to the rule include the imposition of yearly duty on employers to validate OSHA 300 recordkeeping logs and the requirement that employers provide accurate logs to requesting OSHA officials or union representative.
Should the proposed rule be finalized, employers can expect a careful scrutiny of 300 logs maintained for the past five years. Moreover, issuance of citations for log omissions or inaccuracies is in the horizon.
In this two-hour Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help employers understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the OSHA Proposed Constricted Recordkeeping Rules. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing an effective recordkeeping policy to ensure regulatory compliance.
Key topics include:
• Proposed Recordkeeping Rules – An Overview
• AKM LLC v. Secretary of Labor
• Criticisms to the Proposed Rules
• Implications to Employers
• Best Compliance Practices
