January 20 Breakfast Roundtable Details CONN-OSHA Log of Work-Related Injuries

For immediate release
January 14, 2009

WETHERSFIELD - A detailed explanation of the OSHA Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses will be provided on Jan. 20 during Breakfast Roundtable Discussion group meeting sponsored by the agency’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA). 

Taking place from 8:15 to 9:45 a.m. in the Labor Department’s Central Office, 200 Folly Brook Boulevard, Wethersfield, the speaker will be Joseph Weber, supervisor in the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Safety and Health Statistics Unit. Weber will provide tips for properly maintaining the Form 300 (the official title for the injury and illness log) and will answer questions from participants. 

“One of the most important safety and health tools in use today, the OSHA Log of Work-Related Injuries is a written record of every work-related injury and illness taking place on an employers’ premise,” Weber explains. “Required of many businesses and employers, it documents every work-related injury that has resulted in death, loss of consciousness, days away from work, restricted work activity, and medical treatment beyond first aid.” According to Weber, the log also provides members of a company’s health and safety committee with an excellent indicator of their success in meeting CONN-OSHA’s safety and health regulations.  

“Our goal is to give attendees information about the latest safety and health rules, as well as to instill confidence among users who are properly recording and reporting every occupational injury and illness,” Weber noted.  

Also continuing this month will be the discussion portion of the program. Time permitting, each person taking part in the roundtable will be asked to submit a question for discussion and those in the room will be invited to share their opinion regarding the issue.  

Admission to the roundtable is free, but pre-registration is required. To register for the breakfast roundtable or for additional information, please contact CONN-OSHA Training Officer John Able at (860) 263-6902, or via email at able.john@dol.gov.
