December 19, 2014 | Leave a Comment

In early September, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced a final rule that requires employers to notify OSHA within eight hours after an employee is killed on the job. The rule also requires notification within 24 hours when an employee suffers a work-related hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye.The previous regulations only required notification of work-related fatalities and inpatient hospitalizations of three or more employees.  See below for a flowchart  to help you understand how the new rule will affect your reporting requirements.
