OSHA to Hold Meetings on Modernizing Injury/Illness Data Collection

OSHA will hold two meetings to gather information from stakeholders to help modify its current injury and illness recordkeeping regulation and develop a modernized recordkeeping system.

"These informal stakeholder meetings and written comments from stakeholders will help give OSHA direction to develop innovative ideas that will allow employers, workers and researchers to participate in improving occupational safety and health through the use of occupational injury and illness data," said OSHA chief Dr. David Michaels.

The agency added that these stakeholder meetings also support President Obama's Open Government Initiative to increase the ability of the public to easily find, download, and use the resulting dataset generated and held by the federal government.

The information discussion stakeholder meeting dates are:

  • May 25, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT, Washington, D.C.
  • June 3, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CDT, Chicago, Ill.
