OSHA has put into place an additional 1904 Recordkeeping rule which takes effect January 1, 2017. This new rule applies to certain high risk industries, including the Utilities Industry (NAICS 22), and requires employers to electronically submit their annual Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (300A) forms to OSHA. This additional rule makes it more important now than ever that these forms be correctly completed. The NAICS Sector 22 includes Electric Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution, Water Supply and Sewage Treatment Facilities, and Natural Gas Distribution and are considered by OSHA to be high-hazard industries.
This class explains the regulatory requirements of OSHA’s recordkeeping standard; Part 1904 - Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses. Class attendees will learn which types of injuries and illnesses are recordable, how to make entries on the OSHA 300 recordkeeping forms, and how to complete the annual summary form (300A). Utility employers (including city-owned utilities) with 20-249 employees must submit information from their 2016 Form 300A by July 1, 2017, and their 2017 form 300A by July 1, 2018. Beginning in 2019 and every year thereafter, the information must be submitted by March 2.
