This May, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published its final rule related to workplace injury and illness (I/I) recordkeeping. In terms of recordkeeping, there is no change required with regard to form completion requirements. The new rule pertains to the electronic submission of this information to OSHA.
The rule takes effect on January 1, 2017. And the requirements vary depending upon the type of company and the number of employees. Industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses, including the pallet industry, will be the focus. Adele Abrams, president of the Law Office of Adele L. Abrams P.C., states that the requirement will certainly be felt by almost all pallet operations, specifically those establishments with 20 or more employees.
