Get familiar now with new rules for tracking workplace injuries and illnesses that take effect Jan. 1, 2002.
The new Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations add and subtract certain industries from the list of those required to keep such records. Employers with 10 or fewer workers are still exempt from most requirements, but other changes affect which retail and service industries are exempt.
The new rules will alter OSHA's main injury and illness reporting forms, Form 300, Form 301 and Form 300A. And there's more reason to keep the forms updated: You'll now be required to provide records within four hours to an OSHA compliance officer who requests the forms.
Copies of new forms and more details about the rules are available online at www.osha-slc.gov/recordkeeping. For a printed copy, call OSHA at (202) 693-1888.
