The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is ramping up for changes to its electronic recordkeeping rule for 2022, and also has revised policies on recording and reporting of COVID-19 cases. On top of that, OSHA is also enhancing whistleblower protections associated with reporting of injuries, hazards, and other protected activities, and focusing attention on the criminal sanctions possible for falsification of mandatory records.

OSHA recordkeeping regulations are robust and can be very complex. Injury and illness recordkeeping should be implemented and maintained by experienced, qualified individuals. The size of the company, number of employees, and industry classification need to be taken into consideration for the employer to best determine who this important task is assigned to. Injury and illness data is critical to the company, federal/state/local regulatory compliance, and legal matters. Injury and illness records need to be made available upon request and can under certain circumstances be requested by employees, ex-employees, or their representatives, so issues such as housekeeping of records and privacy concerns becomes as critical as the data itself. Employers must keep and maintain these records for at least five years. Bottom line, choose wisely the person for this assignment!
