Under New OSHA Regulations 'Failure to Report Could Lead to Significant Fines’ says OSHA Expert
Remodeling Magazine’s sister site, Concrete Construction, recently attended the annual World of Concrete event. Concrete Construction’s editor Bill Palmer speaks with Jim Rogers of Arizona State University to discuss the latest OSHA requirements. As Rogers told Concrete Construction:
Sure, the most significant changes on those reporting requirements. As of January 1, all contractors have to report all fatalities, which they’ve always been required to do, within eight hours of the event. But previously, they’ve always been queried to report the hospitalization of three or more workers. As of January 1 they have to report the hospitalization of anybody, so even a single worker.
