ASSE Comments on OSHA’s Proposed Reporting Requirement Changes

Posted in on Wed, Sep 21, 2011

In a comment for the record, ASSE said it could not support proposed changes to OSHA’s reporting rules from the current requirement that employers report within 8 hours fatalities and in-patient hospitalizations of 3 or more employees to 1 or more employees and to add the requirements that amputations be reported within 24 hours.  ASSE said it does not believe, given OSHA’s resources and the practical difficulties employers face in reporting, that these enhanced reporting requirements will result in the kind of improved safety and better data that OSHA intends.
