OSHA was supposed to have their 300 log e-file site up and running by February and though we are only a few weeks out from the July 1 deadline, there is no site to be seen. Here is an update from OSHA on what they intend to do...
Last week, the House and the Senate overturned an OSHA record keeping law known as the "Volks Rule." If you're not familiar with this rule and how it effects your organization, watch the video to find out!
Why do we continue to allow the "signs & symptoms" of workplace hazards to thrive, often unaddressed? Near Misses are a vital component to your safety program...here's why.
In this short video, I break down the effective dates for all 2017 OSHA rules. This includes the new record keeping laws, anti-retaliation laws, drug screening rules, whistleblower laws, emphasis on incentive programs, beryllium PEL limits, silica PEL limits, walking-working surfaces, electronic submission of OSHA 300 logs and certified vs. qualified crane operators in construction.
We continue to receive multiple questions from clients and colleagues regarding what "Trump's OSHA" will look like. I have several thoughts on this based on our "boots on the ground" experience with OSHA and the ways in which we've seen their laws change in THEIR favor over the last handful of years. This is a must watch as we find many pro-OSHA laws that are sure to keep them very passively-active over the next several years. Check it out!
January 1, 2017 has come and gone and that means OSHA's new electronic filing law is in full effect. Do you know what's required by YOUR establishment for reporting 300 logs over the next 3 years? This and several other frequent questions on this topic are answered in this video. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
As we move into the new year and many of our clients are getting their 2016 OSHA 300 logs all put together to close that chapter, I wanted to provide a quick resource to assist you in understanding the differences between a First Aid incident and an actual OSHA recordable incident. This is important because you don't want to over report and you surely don't want to under report and find yourself in a record keeping battle where osha thinks you're TRYING to hide incidents. My goal is to make this simple, but also provide answers to common gray areas where companies might think something is First Aid and it's recordable and vice versa. So, How Does OSHA Define First Aid? Check out the video!
