OSHA's New Stance on Post-Accident
OSHA's New Stance on Post-Accident
OSHA released its final rule to revise its Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses regulation.

The focus of the rule is to require certain employers to submit injury and illness data to OSHA electronically. However, OSHA also used this platform to establish a new position on post-accident drug testing. OSHA takes the remarkable position that post-accident drug testing might actually be a violation of OSHA standards. In addition, OSHA warns employers that it will be aggressively scrutinizing any employee incentive programs that tie incentives to injury rates or safety incidents. These new rules were set to become effective in August 2016. As a result of legal challenges, OSHA agreed to postpone enforcement of its new enforcement criteria until November 1, 2016. This webinar is designed to thoroughly review OSHA’s new position and to prepare employers for how to conduct drug testing, and implement other policies, in light of OSHA’s new regulations. Participants will Learn: • Requirements under the new electronic reporting regulations; • New recordkeeping and mandatory reporting regulations; • OSHA’s new directive regarding drug testing policies and how to respond; • Key elements employers must adopt in their drug testing policies to ensure compliance; • How incentive/bonus programs may lead to OSHA citations; and • How to maintain documentation in preparation for OSHA inspections and to reduce exposure to citations. Taught by attorney Jon Hoag of SmithAmundsen.
