OSHA alert: Don’t set policies that stifle injury reporting

OSHA last month issued a memo alerting its field officers to watch­­ out for employer policies and incentives that could discourage workers from reporting injuries. The agency pointed to possible discriminatory practices, including supervisor bonuses for lower injury rates and discipline for staff who report injuries.

Discipline for staff that report injuries? That’s ridiculous. It is in the employers best interest to keep its employees safe and healthy. If they are injured it will result in lost productivity.
