DOL Help for Employer On OSHA Reporting
by Michael Fox
Last week I posted about DOL's new app for employees to keep records of their hours worked, so to be fair, the DOL does not limit its computerized assistance to employees. It also has on line assistance designed to help the employer community comply with their obligations under various statutes.
Although not as cool as an "app" the DOL's various elaws are helpful. The most recent, and what prompted today's post, is one to help an employer know if an incident is recordable under OSHA. To walk you through the regulations in a systematic form, check out theOSHA Recordkeeping Advisor.
For an employer not sophisticated in OSHA requirements, it's a good first step.
