OSHA Update: Recordkeeping

By Bethany Watson, 365 Safety Services

Employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep records of any recordable injuries/illnesses, and the records must be maintained for at least five years.  In 2016 a new law was passed that some employers must now submit some injury/illness records electronically.  Initially, these records were required to be submitted to OSHA by July 1, 2017, but OSHA has now suspended this date until further notice.  Click this helpful link to stay updated with this requirement.
