Certain employers are required to track and report their employees’ injuries and illnesses during the year, but OSHA believes it isn’t seeing the real picture. So the agency has begun a national enforcement effort to identify underrecorded and incorrectly recorded workplace injuries.
The campaign involves closely inspecting records of certain employers with high injury rates, then interviewing key employees and inspecting the workplace.
