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.
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!
