How to log incidents, properly maintain records and produce sound documentation to avoid costly fines and penalties.
In an effort to ensure all non-exempt organizations meet employee health, environmental and safety standards, OSHA has been getting tougher on companies and cracking down on record-keeping practices in particular. With the complexity of OSHA's rules, regulations and record-keeping requirements, are you confident that your organization is safe from potentially costly penalties, fines and even legal action?
The U.S. government is taking OSHA violations more seriously than ever: More than 100 new OSHA inspectors have been added during the past few years, the number of inspections has increased and the amount of penalties is scheduled to increase dramatically in the coming months. More specifically, record-keeping practices are bearing the brunt of many meticulous reviews. Given the troubled economy, many organizations may be tempted to cut corners on safety in an effort to conserve resources, but the potential for serious consequences is only going to increase. The federal government has proposed extensive budget expansions for OSHA with an emphasis on enforcement and increased on-site inspections. Now more than ever, it's imperative that you and your organization take extra precautions to ensure complete compliance with OSHA's record-keeping policies and procedures!
In the long run, cutting safety programs leads to higher accident rates, higher health insurance premiums and closer scrutiny from OSHA inspectors, resulting in hefty fines and penalties if infractions are found.
