New Requirements for Reporting Injuries to OSHA

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

OSHA has recently updated their recordkeeping requirements. As of January 1, 2015, employers now have to report the following to OSHA:

 

·         All work-related fatalities within 8 hours

·         All work-related inpatient hospitalizations of one or more employees

·         All work-related amputations

·         All work-related losses of an eye

 

For work-related fatalities, employers must report the incident to OSHA within 8 hours of finding out about it. For any in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or eye loss, employers must report the incident within 24 hours of learning about it. Only fatalities occurring within 30 days of the work-related incident need to be reported to OSHA. For an inpatient 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.

 

The best way to report to OSHA is by calling their 24 hour OSHA hotline at 1-800-321-OSHA (6742). OSHA is also developing a new way to report events electronically, which will be released soon on OSHA’s website at www.osha.gov.
