Instructor: Gary Glader
The OSHA recordkeeping workshop will provide detailed information regarding what should, and should not, be reported on the OSHA 300 log. The workshop will also provide critical information regarding completion of the 300A form which will be reported or uploaded electronically. While the agency issues many citations to employers for inaccurate or incorrect recordkeeping, the most important consideration is avoiding an unnecessary inspection caused by over-reporting or incorrectly reporting this information. Workshop participants will also learn how to calculate OSHA incident rates and compare those rates to their peer group. Incident rates that exceed peer group rates are an indication of the opportunity to reduce injuries and incident rates. Simply completing and posting the OSHA 300 and 300A form is no longer enough. Affected employers MUST do a better job understanding and report only what the agency requires to be reported on the form or risk a costly and unnecessary inspection.
