A live webinar on OSHA record keeping and reporting will be held July 15 for small-business owners and others who could use help understanding these complex issues and the associated responsibilities. MentorHealth, trainer of health care professionals, will be providing the webinar.

Webinar overview

OSHA requires that businesses maintain a running account of injuries and illness that occur in the workplace. The logs must be completely and accurately filled in and completed. At the end of the year, these figures must be reported to OSHA or other report collection agencies t0 determine if the rate of injuries and illnesses falls within the norm for that industry sector. Although not a recommended practice, some businesses use these figures as a measure of the success or failure of their safety programs. Over-reporting injuries and illnesses or under-reporting such numbers can result in problems, both internally in a company, as well as with the regulatory agency. Accurate reporting is imperative, and is a good tool to use in determining problem areas in the company’s business operation.
