OSHA proposes change to injury/illness data collection
OSHA is proposing to revise its
Occupational Injury and Illness Recording and Reporting
regulation by restoring a column on the OSHA Form 300 to better
identify work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). The rule
does not change existing requirements for when and under what
circumstances employers must record musculoskeletal disorders on
their injury and illness logs. It would require employers to
place a check mark in a column for all MSDs they have recorded.
"Restoring the MSD column will improve the ability of workers
and employers to identify and prevent work-related
musculoskeletal disorders by providing simple and easily
accessible information," said Assistant Secretary Michaels. "It
will also improve the accuracy and completeness of national
work-related injury and illness data." For more information,
news re lease and
Federal Register notice.
Workplaces with high injury and illness rates in OSHA sights
OSHA has notified approximately 15,000
employers that injury and illness rates at their worksites are
considerably higher than the national average. In a letter sent
to those employers, Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA David
Michaels explained that the notification is an active step to
encourage employers to act now to improve safety and health
conditions in their workplaces. To view letter and list of
worksites, visit OSHA's
Freedom of Information Act Web page.
