Believe it or not, more than half of the companies that OSHA inspected in the past year were cited for recordkeeping violations.
And while it seems that though most organizations ARE filling out the forms, they're just not doing it correctly. Unfortunately for these organizations, they paid millions of dollars in fines.
To make matters worse, OHSA recently made changes to the Injury Recordkeeping Standard, so even if you did it correctly in the past, you might not in the future. Not understanding this Standard can result in even more citations and fines. Even simple mistakes in filling out the required forms can result in big fines.
But you CAN avoid these problems! This session will simplify and clarify the recordkeeping regulations that can be difficult to understand. Our expert speaker, with many years of experience in dealing with OSHA regulations, will help you get a good handle on what OSHA requires of employers and will provide simple methods you can use to ensure OSHA compliance.
This training session will focus on the OSHA Recordkeeping Standard and its often-confusing rules for classifying injuries, and then address some of the most common mistakes companies make in filling out their OSHA logs.
By attending, you will learn:
- The five most common mistakes companies make when filling out their logs – and how to avoid them!

- Deciding what to do with the information from your incident reports
