OSHA simplifies record keeping for employers
Beginning January 1, 2002, employers will be following updated, easier requirements for recording on-the-job injuries and illnesses. They’ll also be using OSHA’s new record-keeping forms designed to fit on legal-sized paper. OSHA has planned a major outreach effort to help employers and workers understand the changes and comply with the new requirements.p>
OSHA written materials are available directly from the agency’s publications office. You can request them by calling 1-800-321-OSHA or accessing the agency’s Web site at www.osha.gov.
