Electronic Injury and Illness Reporting The Challenges and Changes

California's Gov. Gavin Newsom recently signed into law legislation that brings back some of the OSHA electronic recordkeeping requirements developed by the Obama administration that were overturned by Congress at the start of the Trump administration. This webinar uses that development as a jumping off point to discuss best practices for recordkeeping and injury and illness reporting and what employers need to keep top of mind, whether they have facilities in California or not.

Greenberg Traurig attorneys Michael T. Taylor and Genus Heidary focus much of their practices on representing clients on OSHA-related matters, as well as health, safety and the environment. Michael Taylor has defended scores of employers during enforcement litigation before federal OSHA and Cal-OSHA, and also provides OSHA compliance counseling. Genus Heidary provides compliance counseling in relation to the development and improvement of environmental, health, and safety programs to her clients. Together, they will provide an insider’s view of OSHA recordkeeping and injury and illness reporting standards and will help attendees understand the challenges and changes.

 
Participants will:

  • Receive an overview of recordkeeping and reporting changes in California and learn more about avoiding recordkeeping and reporting violations.
  • Learn more about meeting geographic-specific regulations to ensure compliance with injury reporting regulations.
  • Find out how to use data collected about injuries and illnesses to improve safety efforts.
  • Learn how they can use software to create automated notifications based on roles to ensure that those who need to know about an injury are immediately notified.
  • Learn how to use mobile applications to eliminate the use of Excel spreadsheets and paper lists that need to be re-entered later and that can be used to create databases that can be accessed by anyone with the appropriate privileges.
