REGULATION NEWS & INFORMATION



New reporting requirements go into effect January 1: OSHA answers questions in Dec. 11 Twitter chat 

New Reporting Requirements

Beginning Jan. 1, 2015, there will be a change to what covered employers are required to report to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Employers will now be required to report all work-related fatalities within 8 hours and all in-patient hospitalizations, amputations, and losses of an eye within 24 hours of finding out about the incident.

On Dec. 11, OSHA held a conversation on Twitter to answer questions about the new reporting requirements going into effect at the beginning of the new year. Some of the most frequently asked questions are discussed in a blog by Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health.

Previously, employers were required to report all workplace fatalities and when three or more workers were hospitalized in the same incident. The updated reporting requirements have a life-saving purpose: they will enable employers and workers to prevent future injuries by identifying and eliminating the most serious workplace hazards.

Employers have three options for reporting these severe incidents to OSHA. They can call their nearest area office during normal business hours, call the 24-hour OSHA hotline at 1-800-321-OSHA (1-800-321-6742), or they will be able to report online at www.osha.gov/report_online. For more information and resources, visit OSHA's Web page on the updated reporting requirements and watch OSHA’s new YouTube video, where Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health, explains the new reporting requirements.

Starting January 1, 2015:
All employers* must report:

 • All work-related fatalities within 8 hours

Within 24 hours, all work-related:
 • Inpatient hospitalizations
 • Amputations
 • Losses of an eye

How to Report Incident
 • Call 1-800-321-OSHA (6742)
 • Call your nearest OSHA area office, during normal business hours (www.osha.gov/html/RAmap.html)
 • Visit http://www.osha.gov/report_online

 
*Employers under Federal OSHA's jurisdiction must begin reporting by January 1. Establishments in a state with a state run OSHA program should contact their state plan for the implementation date.
