Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) OSHA has authority to promulgate standards pursuant to the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, which has a general duty clause that requires that each employer shall furnish to each employee a job and a work-place that are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees

19 OSHAs Recordkeeping Rule (1904) OSHAs updated recordkeeping rule expands the list of severe injuries that employers must report to OSHA. As of January 1, 2015, all employers must report: 1. All work related fatalities within 8 hours 2. All work related inpatient hospitalizations, all amputations and all losses of an eye within 24 hours. You can report to OSHA by: 1. Calling OSHAs free and confidential number at 1800-321-OSHA 2. Calling your closest Area Office during normal

business hours. 3. Using the new online form. OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements OSHA published a Final Rule to amend its recordkeeping regulation to remove

the requirement to electronically submit to OSHA information from the OSHA Form 300 and OSHA form 301 for establishments with 250 or more employees that are required to routinely keep injury and illness records. Covered establishments are only required to electronically submit information from the OSHA Form 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses). The requirement to keep and maintain OSHA Forms 300, 300A, and 301 for five years is not changed by this Final Rule.

OSHAs Rrecordkeeping Rule 1940 Exceptions: Partial exemptions are granted for companies with ten (10) or fewer employees; Partial exemptions are granted if your business establishment is classified in a specific low hazard retail, service, finance, insurance or real estate. If there is a fatality or an event that results in the hospitalization of three or more employees you must report.

Accident Investigation OSHA strongly encourages employers to investigate all incidents in which a worker was hurt, as well as close calls. This provides employers and workers the opportunity to identify hazards in their operation and shortcomings in their safety and health programs.. Most importantly, it enables employers and workers to identify and implement the corrective actions necessary to prevent future incidents. Policy should include: Written procedures

Who conducts investigations Are investigations performed for all injuries (near misses)? Follow up Lock Out/Tag Out 1910.147 OSHA regulates exposure to high levels of energy under the Control of Exposure to Hazardous Energy Standard, more familiarly known as the lockout or tagout rule. This standard applies to any situation in which the unexpected re-energization of a piece of equipment, or the release of stored energy, could cause an employee injury. As with any

OSHA program, you need: Coordinator, Written Program, Documented training (essential and non essential personnel) and Documented Enforcement Hazard Communication Standard, 1910.1200 The Hazard Communication Standard (Haz Com), also referred to as the employees right to know rule, requires employers to inform employees of all hazards associated with the materials with which they must work. If a product poses a health or

physical hazard for employees, it is covered. A product presents a physical hazard if it is flammable, combustible, reactive, water-reactive, explosive, or pyrophoric. Hazard Communication 1900.1200 Employers are required to provide training on: The new symbols and warning messages on the labels and SDSs The location of hazard information on the labels and SDSs

The proper use of the chemical(s) The precautions necessary for hazard protection The steps to take in the event of an emergency 2 6 Hazard Communication 1900.1200 Additional Compliance Requirements: Obtain an SDS for every hazardous chemical product used in the

workplace Keep a complete and up-to-date set of the SDSs readily available to all employees. 2 7 Fire Safety Fire safety management involves protecting patients, employees, visitors, and buildings from the threat of fire and

smoke. Every building is required to be in compliance with the structure and fire protection rules set forth in the National Fire Protection Associations Life Safety Code. Emergency Preparedness Planning Chain of Command Emergency Response Teams Response Activities Training Personal Protection

Medical Assistance Occupational Violence Prevention The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 mandates that, in addition to compliance with hazard-specific standards, all employers have a general duty to provide their employees with a work-place free from recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious physical harm.

OSHA will rely on Section 5(a), the General Duty Clause for enforcement authority. Occupational Violence Prevention What is workplace violence?
