OSHA: Record injuries from ‘horseplay,’ team-building

by on
in Employment Law,Human Resources

If your organization is required to keep track of employees’ injuries, take note of two OSHA interpretation letters.

They said employers are required to record injuries that occur during: (1) off-site team-building events (in this case, go-carting at a company party); and (2) nonwork-related “horseplay” between employees at the work site (a worker who cut a co-worker while goofing off with a knife).

Note: For details on which employers must keep injury records, go to www.osha.gov/recordkeeping.
