New 2017 OSHA Recordkeeping Requirements - Free Resource

This coming year, submitting OSHA records has a new sense of urgency. Each year, members must post OSHA injury and illness records from the prior year for employee review between Jan. 1 through March. However, new reporting requirements for electronically reporting illness and injury data changes the process significantly. Most companies will need to electronically submit their OSHA data by July 1, 2017.  The database for submitting the information will not be available until February.

SMACNA describes the requirements in a December 2016 SMACNews article including information on free webinars that may be helpful to SMACNA members.  SMACNA has partnered with Intec Inc., which provides services addressing workplace safety and OSHA compliance, to provide a free webinar on the requirements of the new OSHA rule.

Read the Intec brochure and sign up for the webinar: “Briefing: OSHA Recordkeeping” by clicking on the webinar registration date that you want. The content of each webinar is the same, yet may be revised slightly as the rule advances though OSHA’s rulemaking process.

For further information on the OSHA requirements or the free webinars, contact Mike McCullion, SMACNA director of Market Sectors and Safety, at 703-995-4027 or
