Alaska OSHA Expands Reporting Requirements

Friday, June 3, 2016

Alaska has recently updated their workplace accident reporting requirements for employers. On May 17, 2016, Governor Walker signed Senate Bill 148 into law. The legislation expands Alaska’s workplace accident reporting requirements to match federal OSHA standards and even be a little more stringent than the federal requirements.

Alaska’s new accident reporting requirements now require reporting to OSHA within 8 hours of becoming aware of any of the following types of incidents:

  • A fatality of one or more employees
  • Overnight hospitalization of one or more employees
  • Loss of an eye
  • Amputation of a body part

Employers may report accidents in person or by telephone to Alaska Occupational Safety and Health offices in Anchorage, Juneau, or Fairbanks or by calling 1-800-770-4940 or 1-800-321-6742 (evenings, weekends and holidays).
