NEW OSHA REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

Beginning January 1, 2015, employers who are covered by OSHA have increased reporting requirements for on-the-job injuries.  Employers will now have to report in-patient hospitalizations, amputations, and loss of an eye within 24 hours of the work-related accident.  Currently, employer reporting obligations are limited to work-related fatalities or where three or more workers were hospitalized in the same incident.   More information and a handy flowchart can be found here: http://social.dol.gov/blog/when-a-worker-loses-an-arm-who-knows-about-it/
