CAL/OSHA’S DEMAND FOR FIVE YEARS OF RECORDS IS VERY REAL

13 Feb

Cal/OSHA has issued an internal memo which instructs compliance officers – during every inspection – to request Employer’s records of work injuries – Log 300, 301 and 300A for the previous five calendar years.

You can become the subject of a Cal/OSHA inspection based on having had a serious injury; having a workers’ comp. Ex Mod of 125+; being the subject of a complaint by an employee, former employee or even a competitor; operating in a hazardous industry or merely subject of a drive by or random inspection.

No matter why Cal/OSHA visits your operation, you must be ready. As you will see, you can receive two or even three citations just based on your OSHA injury files – which imposes a $12,000 maximum fine per citation.

 

Cal/OSHA Inspector Guidelines:
  • Guidelines apply to all inspections opened on or after 1/01/19
  • Inspectors will request Log 300s and related records (301, 300A)
    for the previous five calendar years (for example, during calendar
    year 2019, request Log 300s and related records (301, 300A) for 2014-2018.)
  • Records must be provided within four (4) hours.
  • Issue Citations for:
    • 14300.33 (a) if not having retained the five-years of records created
    • 14300.29 (b) if injuries that are not on the form are found
    • Other 14300 sections, addressing requirements on how
      the forms must be completed, if finding violations of these sections
    • 14300.33 (b)(1) if finding evidence that Log 300 entries should
      have been updated and were not.

Important Notice for Employers: Change In OSHA Record keeping Rule

1 Feb
Feb-Masthead
On January 25, 2019, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published in the Federal Register its revisions to its electronic record keeping rules. As expected, OSHA eliminated the requirement for employers to electronically submit Forms 300 and 301 to OSHA. The rule, located at 29 C.F.R. Section 1904.41, still requires employers in the following two categories to electronically submit Form 300A (Annual Summary) to OSHA annually:

 

  1. Establishments with 250 or more employees
  2. Establishments with 20-249 employees in industries designated by OSHA.
Employers need to be aware that the 2018 summary needs to be posted Feb. 1 through April for all establishments with 10 or more employees and those with over 250 employees and with 20 to 249 employees in selected industries need to post on line electronically as well.

 

CalWorkSafety consultant Edward Li assists employers with compliance issues.

NOTE:
