The new federal OSHA and Oregon OSHA recordkeeping and injury recording rules cover employee hospitalizations and amputations.

Oregon OSHA's Recordkeeping, Recording Rules Taking Effect Jan. 1

Oregon OSHA adopted the changes in March 2015 after federal OSHA changed its recordkeeping and reporting requirements.

Oregon OSHA's latest newsletter reminds employers in the state that the agency's new reporting and recordkeeping rules will take effect Jan. 1, 2016.

There are two rules taking effect on that date. They are:

437-001-0704, Reporting Fatalities and Injuries to Oregon OSHA, which requires employers to:

  • Report fatalities and catastrophes to Oregon OSHA within eight hours
  • Report all work-related inpatient hospitalizations, amputations, or avulsions and loss of an eye to Oregon OSHA within 24 hours.

437-001-0700, Recording Workplace Injuries and Illnesses. There are three key changes in the rule:

  • The list of industries in Table 1 that are exempt from the requirement to keep OSHA injury and illness records has been updated. The updated list, based on the North American Industry Classification System, replaces the old Standard Industrial Classification system.
  • The 300A annual summary of workplace injuries and illnesses allows an employer to designate a representative to sign and certify that the information is correct, as long as that information is shared with a company executive.
  • The rule keeps the exemption for any employer with 10 or fewer employees regardless of industry classification.

Oregon OSHA adopted the changes in March 2015 after federal OSHA changed its recordkeeping and reporting requirements. The federal rule changes took effect Jan. 1, 2015.
