(OSHA) is initiating a national emphasis program (NEP) on recordkeeping to assess the accuracy of injury and illness data recorded by employers.
This new NEP will involve inspecting occupational injury and illness records prepared by businesses and appropriately enforcing regulatory requirements when employers are found to be under-recording injuries and illnesses.
The NEP will focus on selected industries with high injury and illness rates. The inspections include a records review, employee interviews, and a limited safety and health inspection of the workplace.
Now is probably a good time to do a self audit to assure your records are in order.
If you are the lucky recipient of one of these visits, how did it go?
