Osha’S New Electronic Record-Keeping Requirements: Ramifications For Employers

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently issued a controversial final rule requiring some facilities to submit injury and illness records electronically. As part of its continuing efforts to “shame” employers, OSHA will make the records public, which could provide fodder for employee-side advocates seeking to use the data as leverage. The revised regulation also creates an entirely new cause of action for employees who claim that their employers retaliated against them for reporting work-related injuries or illnesses. Join us for a webinar to discuss the expanded record-keeping requirements and the rule’s significant ramifications for employers.
