OSHA Recordkeeping Site for Employers

May 20, 2011

You may have heard, or read in my last blog entry, that the Department of Labor (DOL) has come out with an “App” to assist employees in keeping track of their time for wage and overtime matters.

Not to appear too one-sided, the DOL just came out with a website to assist employers with recordkeeping for OSHA matters.  This directly from the DOL’s press release:

“The OSHA Recordkeeping Advisor helps employers and others responsible for organizational safety and health quickly determine whether an injury or illness is work-related; whether a work-related injury or illness needs to be recorded; and which provisions of the regulations apply when recording a work-related injury or illness.  To help employers in making these determinations, the OSHA Recordkeeping Advisor relies on their responses to a series of pre-set questions.”

The website may be found at http://www.dol.gov/elaws/osharecordkeeping.htm.

That’s nice, but not as cool as an app.
