New recordkeeping rule for severe on-the-job injuries coming to Michigan.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has revised its recordkeeping rule effective January 1, 2015. Changes include updating the list of industries exempt from routine recordkeeping and expanding the list of severe work-related injuries that all covered employers must report.

The new federal OSHA rule will require employers to file a detailed report within eight hours of fatal workplace accidents. Severe on-the-job injuries that do not result in death but require hospitalization must be reported within 24 hours.

Michigan operates on its own occupational safety and health program and must promulgate standards which are at least as effective as the federal rules.  MIOSHA intends to adopt the new federal rules by reference.

MIOSHA will be sponsoring several events to help employers comply with these new changes. You can find the schedule at the link below.
