OSHA is turning up the heat on its Recordkeeping Rule with increased enforcement efforts, a proposed Recordkeeping Modernization rule involving radical changes to data collection requirements, and plans for an eventual Injury and Illness Prevention Program (I2P2) standard. HR professionals and safety managers need to stay compliant and aware of activity surrounding the standard. This session covers the main components of the rule, including OSHA Forms 300, 300A, and 301, as well as provides an overview of current related regulatory activity, a review of recordable incident criteria and scenarios, and actionable steps for achieving and maintaining compliance with the standard.
This program will discuss all aspects of legally effective incident investigation and management, arising from a variety of crisis situations. Basic principles of accident investigation will be examined, as well as management of OSHA/MSHA inspections arising from occupational accidents, insurance and tort/contractor liability issues, media management, staffing, and site security. Given that improperly managed incidents can frequently give rise to OSHA/MSHA prosecution or civil tort and contract liability, learning the basic principles will help to limit legal exposures for companies and their managers. Participants will learn proper approaches to root cause analysis as well as proactive steps that can be taken to avoid crisis situations in the future.
