Presented by Lindsay DiSalvo and Ashley D. Mitchell
Although OSHA’s Recordkeeping, Reporting, and E-Recordkeeping rules may seem clear on their face, there are many nuances in all three standards that are essential for employers to understand in navigating their injury and illness recording, reporting, and electronic submission obligations. It is important to understand those nuances for several reasons.
As to recordkeeping, 300 Logs and 300A Summaries are always requested during an inspection and can be an additional tool for enforcement purposes. Injury and illness data can also be a factor in certain employers’ continued operations and sustainability, required to be shared in contract bidding and/or requested by potential customers. Furthermore, reporting a serious injury or illness has a direct correlation to OSHA’s initiation of enforcement activities, often resulting in either a Rapid Response Investigation or an on-site inspection depending on the type or report. Finally, e-recordkeeping data is collected by OSHA and used in developing and executing its Site-Specific Targeting Program (SST annually) based on an employer’s 300A Summary.
