An educational webcast presented by Risk Engineering for Chubb agents/brokers and select clients. Under a new rule, employers will be required to electronically submit certain records of workplace injuries. This rule requires larger companies and what OSHA considers “high hazard employers” to submit electronic versions of their injury and illness logs. OSHA feels that the analysis of this data will allow them to use its enforcement more efficiently and will make some of the data available on the OSHA website. The rule also prohibits employers from discouraging workers from reporting an injury or illness and requires employers to inform employees of the right to report work-related injuries and illnesses free from retaliation. This new rule will impact post injury drug testing programs, incentive programs and safety rules.
Note: This webinar is intended to provide a loss control perspective of the topic. Insurance coverage issues will not be covered during this webcast. If you have questions concerning coverage or insurability, please contact your insurance broker or underwriter.
