OSHA Announces New Reporting Requirements For Severe Injuries

On September 11, 2014, OSHA announced a revised recordkeeping rule which includes key changes to reporting requirements. The rule which becomes effective January 1, 2015, expands the list of severe work-related injuries that all covered employers must report to OSHA. The revised rule retains the current requirement to report all work-related fatalities within 8 hours, but adds the additional requirement to report all work-related inpatient hospitalizations, amputations, and loss of an eye within 24 hours to OSHA. Only fatalities occurring within 30 days of the work-related incident must be reported to OSHA. Further, for an in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye, these incidents must be reported to OSHA only if they occur within 24 hours of the work-related incident. For more information on the new reporting requirements, read here, or contact members of our Labor & Employment Section.
