OSHA goes interactive with recordkeeping rule tool

OSHA Healthcare Connection, July 5, 2011

Ever have those what-if questions concerning whether an injury is recordable for OSHA purposes? For example:

  1. An employee slips on ice in the company parking when reporting to work and loses one day of work, or
  2. An employee is hit by a car in the company parking when reporting to work and loses one day of work

Which, if any, are recordable?

If you don’t have a resident OSHA expert available, you could consult the OSHA Recordkeeping Advisor, the agency’s new interactive tool that simulates an employer’s interaction with a recordkeeping rules expert.

And for the answer to the question above, read the OSHA Healthcare Advisor.
