The 2016 Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (Form 300A) must be posted in workplaces from February through April.
OSHA is seeking comments on a potential standard to prevent workplace violence in healthcare and social assistance settings.
New rule on Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Fall Protection Systems will keep workers safer and provide greater flexibility for employers in General Industry.
All employers must notify OSHA when an employee is killed on the job or suffers a work-related hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye. Know the deadlines and required reporting procedures.
