VelocityEHS Helps EHS Professionals Comply with February 1 OSHA Recordkeeping Standard Deadline
Chicago (January 10, 2018) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software, is providing safety and HR professionals with resources to help them comply with the upcoming OSHA Recordkeeping Standard deadline. Between February 1 and April 30, employers covered by the standard are required to post a summary of serious injuries and illnesses from the previous year in a location that is clearly visible to employees and new applicants. Recent changes to the Recordkeeping Standard have left many employers confused about their responsibilities.
VelocityEHS is hosting a free webinar, “OSHA's Recordkeeping Standard: Your Guide to Compliance” on January 11, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST to address concerns employers have about their compliance obligations, such as the need for all non-exempt employers to also electronically submit recorded injury and illness data annually to the agency. Also available from VelocityEHS is an OSHA Recordkeeping Infographic to help EHS professionals quickly and easily determine which workplace incidents are OSHA recordable or reportable, what next steps need to be taken, and when.
“To meet OSHA’s Recordkeeping Deadline, employers need healthy processes in place for documenting worker injury and illness information,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “Companies struggling with keeping accurate injury and illness records should look into EHS software to help simplify the process. For instance, the easy-to-use VelocityEHS Incident Management product helps business better manage workplace incidents, while our Mobile App enables workers to instantly report incidents, near misses and hazards as they occur – with or without internet connectivity – via a smartphone or tablet device.”
The VelocityEHS Incident Management solution also streamlines the reporting process by generating the injury and illness summaries employers are required to post on-site each February, and for some employers, submitting it electronically to OSHA via the agency’s new Injury Tracking Application (ITA).
