COURSE OVERVIEW

OSHA’s Recordkeeping Standard ensures that companies track and report incidents, so they’re less likely to repeat them. And the Wisconsin Safety Council’s Recordkeeping Compliance course helps you learn to comply with the standard in your own facility. During this program, we’ll walk you through the key elements of the standard, and show you how to make it part of an effective safety program. The recordkeeping portion will discuss the OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping requirements; coverage and partial exemption; recordkeeping forms and recording criteria; determination of work relatedness; and additional information required to be compliant with the recordkeeping standard. An OSHA Update discusses what’s new with the agency; ARRA enforcement; combustible dust, and much more. Get answers to all your OSHA questions.

MOST MUST POST OSHA LOG SUMMARY FEB. 1 – APRIL 30
A reminder that if you employ more than ten people, you must post a summary (OSHA Form 300A) of your 2009 OSHA recordkeeping log, from February 1 – April 30. On the summary form, list total number of injury and illness cases, days away from work, days of restrictions or job transfers, and types of injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2009 and were recorded on the log. Be sure to include the date and establishment information in the appropriate spots. If you had no injuries or illnesses, you’re still required to post the form, with zeros on the total line. The summary must be certified by a company executive and posted in a common area where you typically display notices to employees.
