MARCOM's Video On Demand (VOD) program on OSHA Recordkeeping for Employees discusses the regulation, its reporting and recordkeeping requirements and how employees can participate more effectively in the process. The OSHA Part 1904 Recordkeeping Standard gives employees a powerful way to help make their workplaces safer. By reporting the illnesses and injuries that occur on the job, workers can help their companies to identify safety problems that need to be addressed in their facilities. The information also helps OSHA modify existing regulations, or create new ones, to improve workplace safety across the country. Areas included in the program include the OSHA Recordkeeping Rule, work-related injuries and illnesses, recordable work-related injuries and illnesses, OSHA Recordkeeping forms, reporting illnesses and injuries and more.
