The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has jurisdiction to protect the workers of America and its territories from harmful working conditions. They are a department under the US Department of Labor and was given the legal authority to create standards to regulate most work environments through the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. A key component of the department's measure of how well it is protecting employees is by injury and illness recordkeeping.
Recording injury and illnesses gives OSHA insight on how workers are getting injured, what extent are the injuries or illness, and how did the employer handle the event. In the 29 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) 1904, OSHA gives a codified and detailed instruction on what is recordable and how do you record those identified cases. However, there are several recordable injuries that are often unreported due to misunderstanding of the law. Such an omission can cost thousands of dollars in OSHA citations when they are revealed in an OSHA audit.
Recently, OSHA issued over 40,000 citations for safety violations in the workplace. In one example, a furniture manufacture was fined over $11,000 for recordkeeping violations. An amend29 CFR 1904 Recordkeeping rule is coming in from OSHA to omit 300 and 301 forms from electronic submittals to large employers; Only 300a summary forms will be submittedInclude EIN for business to help OSHA and BLS collect better data.
OSHA is increasing the budget for compliance officers and compliance assistance specialist. If you are operating a business with highly hazardous operations, then the likelihood of an OSHA visit has increased.
The tides of change have come to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) since the election of Donald Trump. In recent years, OSHA's regulations have been based on compliance enforcement and behavioral economic techniques for employers who have significant violations. That thought process has changed in the new administration.
Many organizations have learned to comply with OSHA regulations and have avoided fines and citations when audited by OSHA.
Imagine that OSHA showed up at your place of business today. What would you do? How would you handle the audit? Frightening perhaps to think about, but in reality there is no need to fear an OSHA visit - if you understand compliance and your organization's responsibilities. Compliance Safety and Health Officers (CSHO) follow a Field Operations Manual (FOM) which give guidance as to what is the proper way to conduct audits and all related concerns.
This seminar will show how to understand the FOM and the OSHA 29 CFR 1903 regulation regarding audits and inspections. Additionally, guidance will be given on how to lower workers compensation costs through understanding how lower incidents relates to Total Recordable Injury Rates (TRIR), Days Away Restriction and Transfer (DART) rates, and Experience Modification Rating (EMR/EMOD). In many cases, if a company has an EMR that is over 1.0 then it will not be invited to bid for larger projects.
Attending this seminar will give the professional actionable takeaways to improve their overall safety and health program, tips to reduce workers compensation premiums, and create an effective safety and health program.Course Benefits:
