CONN-OSHA Interactive Record Keeping
Workshop Scheduled for Sept. 22
For immediate release
September 9, 2009
WETHERSFIELD, Employers required to maintain
the document known as the OSHA Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses
know the important role it plays in offering a quick summary of a company’s
health and safety records.
A Sept. 22 record
keeping workshop sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of
Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA) will provide attendees with guidance
and tips for ensuring information is accurate and properly kept up-to-date.
The free training
session, led by CONN-OHSA Research Analyst Erin Wilkins, will be held in the
agency’s Central Office, 200 Folly Brook Boulevard, from 9 a.m. to noon.
“When an OSHA
inspector visits an establishment, he or she will typically start with a review
of the OSHA record log,” explains Wilkins. “Unfortunately, too often the forms
are outdated or not properly completed. OSHA recordkeeping rules can be
confusing, but our training strives to make them more user-friendly.”
Wilkins, Record keeping rules changed dramatically in 2002, and as a result,
many employers are reporting occupational injuries and illnesses inaccurately.
She noted that attendees will learn how to properly maintain the following three
Form 300: Log of Work-Related
Injuries and Illnesses
Form 300A: Summary of
Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses
301: Injury and Illness Incident Report
