Why Should You Attend:

On July 29, 2015, a notice of proposed rule was published in the Federal Register; Fed Register #:80:45116-45131. As of October 21, 2016, this proposed rule is in the final rule making process and will be published at any moment and will drastically change the current way record keeping is managed by employers.

OSHA is proposing to amend its recordkeeping regulations, 29 CFR Part 1904, to clarify that employers covered by the record keeping requirements have a continuing obligation to make and maintain accurate records of all recordable injuries and illnesses. While analyzing these parameters of the regulation, this webinar will also discuss OSHA’s “continuing duty” mandates, the statute of limitations for recordkeeping violations, and other intrinsic issues that further elucidate the law.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how OSHA defines maintaining accurate recordkeeping logs as a “continuing duty.”
  • Explain how the statute of limitations for recordkeeping violations becomes 6 months and 5 years.
  • Define what the Volks decision was, and why it is important to know and understand.
  • Describe how OSHA’s effort in the new regulation undoes a D.C. decision in Volks case that OSHA could only cite recordkeeping violation within 6 months of the injury/illness date.

  • The History and Importance of OSHA's Recordkeeping Regulations
