CONN-OSHA Session Details Record Keeping for Injuries and Illnesses

For immediate release
March 11, 2008


WETHERSFIELD - An often overlooked, but very important function necessary for ensuring the daily health and safety of employees everyday in the workplace – record keeping in the workplace -- will be reviewed during a March 28 training session being sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA). 

The three-hour, interactive session workshop is open to every employer in this state and will take place at the agency’s Wethersfield Central Office, located at 200 Folly Brook Boulevard, Wethersfield. The free session will run from 9 a.m. until noon in the agency’s second floor conference room. 

“Commonly called the OSHA Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, and technically known to employers as Form 300, this basic record keeping practice should be viewed not only as a roadmap to workplace mishaps, but also as an excellent indicator of how well your company understands safety and health regulations,” explains Joseph Weber, CONN-OSHA Associate Research Analyst.    

“Record keeping rules changed dramatically in January 2002, yet many employers throughout the country continue to report incorrectly,” Weber noted. “This interactive session is designed to help companies become more accurate and knowledgeable about the latest rules, and ensure confidence that occupational injuries and illnesses have been properly recorded and reported.”

To register for the workshop, or to obtain additional information, please contact, CONN-OSHA Training Officer John Able at (860) 263-6902 or by email at able.john@dol.gov.
