It likely goes without saying that injury and illness recordkeeping is a major “pain point” for safety and HR managers. From determining which injuries are recordable to managing electronic submission requirements, avoiding retaliation claims, and creating a reasonable, effective procedure for employees to report injuries, there are many opportunities for missteps.

With OSHA’s electronic recordkeeping rule fully in effect, the stakes are now higher than ever. And, willful or repeat violations could now cost your company up to $132,598, and OSHA’s Site-Specific Targeting Program uses injury and illness data to target employers for programmed inspections based on higher-than-average injury rates and failure to submit electronic records if required to do so.

Now is the perfect time to get up to speed because employers must compile calendar year 2019 OSHA 300 logs and create and post the Form 300A by February 1, 2020. The submission deadline for employers covered under the electronic recordkeeping rule is also approaching fast March 2, 2020.
