The Employer must directly contact OSHA should any of the following take place:
- Any SINGLE employee admittance into the hospital
- Any injury classified as an amputation w/in 24hrs of the incident
- Any severe eye injury (loss of an eye or severe damage to the eye)
In closing, with the hundreds of companies we work with, we found that OSHA has in fact kept their promise to conduct onsite investigations of these reports. Not only that, but we have also seen site visits increasing from employee complaints. What may have been inquiring letters from OSHA in the recent past, have now increased to a boots on the ground approach.
As an SSG client or partner, we want to continue to share our direct experiences with OSHA. However, OSHA aside, we want to continue to encourage you to keep your workplace safe from all known hazards in order that you and your employees can continue to experience a high quality of life that is not known by those severely injured in the workplace. We greatly look forward to partnering with you on this endeavor in 2016! Here's to a great 2016!
