Is Your Company Complying with the New OSHA Reporting Requirements?

Employers under federal OSHA’s jurisdiction are now required to report all work-related fatalities within 8 hours and all in-patient hospitalizations, amputations, and losses of an eye within 24 hours of finding about the incident.

Companies can call the nearest area office during normal business hours, the 24-hour OSHA hotline at 1-800-321-OSHA (1-800-321-6742), or (at a later date… likely in mid-January) companies can make a report online at www.osha.gov/report_online.

If a company is in a state that has a state-run plan (such as Arizona), those states may vary with implementation dates.

A fancy diagram that shows whether you need to report an injury/fatality was prepared by the Department of Labor and is available below or here.
