OSHA fines have risen to $15,625 for each Serious Violation. Under a new initiative, OSHA can fine an organization for each instance of a violation. Five missing or incorrect entries on the OSHA 300 log could potentially mean $78,125 in fines.
Recordkeeping and Reporting Electronically to OSHA is mandatory for many private employers and all public entities. Additionally, if OSHA comes to inspect your facility, they will ask for these records, which you have four hours to produce. Even if you are maintaining the logs, do you know whether the data you are recording is accurate? Are you aware that:
- The data you submit to OSHA could trigger an inspection?
- 300 logs need to be maintained for each location based upon the NAICS code?
- Based on the NAICS code(s) for your organization you may need to report information to OSHA electronically by March 2nd each year?
- OSHA requires recordable injuries be input within 7 days of the injury or illness?
- Electronic reporting to BLS is different than electronically reporting to OSHA?
If you are responsible for maintaining the log(s) and need more information on how to meet the OSHA Recordkeeping standard or have questions, this is a necessary class for you to attend. DO NOT wait until the end of the year when the information is due, must be posted and/or reported to OSHA and/or the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
