The Latest on OSHA’s E-Recordkeeping & Anti-Retaliation Rule
Tuesday, May 15, 2018 at 1 PM ET
Presented by Eric J. Conn and Dan Deacon
OSHA’s controversial Electronic Recordkeeping and Anti-Retaliation Rule was promulgated in May 2016. Despite a barrage of negative comments during the rulemaking, multiple enforcement deferrals, and two legal challenges that have been stayed pending the Trump Administration’s re-evaluation of the Rule, all elements of the rule are currently in effect, including limits on post-injury drug testing and incentive programs, and by last December, thousands of employers for the first time submitted their injury and illness recordkeeping data to OSHA through its Injury Tracking Application (ITA) web portal.
The Trump Administration is ready to announce its future plans for the E-Recordkeeping Rule, already announcing that it is preparing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to revise (or potentially rescind) the Rule. However, the extent of the revisions to the rule remain unknown, and the timing is key as we approach July 1, 2018, the deadline for the second round of injury data submission.
During this webinar, participants will learn about:
- Current data submission and Anti-Retaliation requirements of the E-Recordkeeping Rule
- OSHA’s enforcement of the E-Recordkeeping and Anti-Retaliation Rule
- Likely updates to OSHA’s Electronic Recordkeeping and Anti-Retaliation Rule
