New reporting requirements now in effect

Employers required to report hospitalizations within 24 hours

By

Beginning Jan. 1, 2015, there was a change to what covered employers are required to report to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Employers are now required to report all work-related fatalities within 8 hours and all inpatient hospitalizations, amputations, and losses of an eye within 24 hours of finding out about the incident.

As of January 1, 2015 all employers* must report:

  • All work-related fatalities within 8 hours
Within 24 hours, all work-related:
  • Inpatient hospitalizations
  • Amputations
  • Losses of an eye
Call 1-800-321-OSHA (6742) or call your nearest OSHA area office, during normal business hours to report an incident.

On Dec. 11, OSHA held a conversation on Web page on the updated reporting requirements and watch OSHA's new YouTube video, where Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health, explains the new reporting requirements.

* Employers under Federal OSHA's jurisdiction must begin reporting by January 1. Establishments in a state with a state run OSHA program should contact their state plan for the implementation date.
