Meeting Description:

OSHA's Fatality, Hospitalization & Amputation Reporting Rule: Lessons Learned

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 1 PM ET

Presented by Eric J. Conn and Lindsay A. DiSalvo

The Obama Administration rolled-out a major change to OSHA’s Fatality & Injury Reporting Rule (i.e., the requirement to phone OSHA when fatalities, in-patient hospitalizations, and amputations occur). The amended rule resulted in thousands more reports of incidents to OSHA than before.  Now, three years into the new reporting scheme, this webinar takes a hard look at what is being reported to OSHA and what OSHA is doing with all the new reported incidents.

Participants will learn the following:

  • Nuances of OSHA's Fatality & Serious Injury Reporting Rule
  • Common Reporting Mistakes and Misunderstandings
  • Data and trends of reports made to OSHA 
  • Actions OSHA is taking in response to injury reports
