OSHA launches web tool for employer recordkeeping compliance

June 29, 2011

June 29, 2011—The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently launched a new interactive web tool, OSHA Recordkeeping Advisor, to help users determine whether injuries and illnesses are work-related and recordable under the OSHA recordkeeping rules.

The OSHA Recordkeeping Advisor simulates an employer's interaction with a recordkeeping rules expert. The Recordkeeping Advisor relies on the users' responses to questions and automatically adapts to the situation presented. Responses put into the program are confidential. The system does not record or store any of the information.

The Recordkeeping Advisor helps employers determine whether an injury or illness is work-related, whether an event or exposure at home or on travel is work-related, whether an exception applies to the injury or illness, whether a work-related injury or illness needs to be recorded, and which provisions of the regulations apply when recording a work-related injury or illness.

"The Recordkeeping Advisor was developed to better help employers understand and comply with their responsibilities to report and record work-related injuries and illnesses," said Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for OSHA.
