1. CONN-OSHA Breakfast Roundtable, Nov. 21, 2017, 8:15 to 9:45 a.m. 

Learn about OSHA's rule on submitting injury and illness records electronically. The new rule, which took effect Jan 1, 2017, requires certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness data that they already are required to record on their onsite OSHA injury and illness forms.

OSHA has provided a secure website that offers three options for data submission:

  • Users can manually enter data into an online form.
  • Users can upload a CSV file to process single or multiple establishments at the same time.
  • Users of automated recordkeeping systems can transmit data electronically via an application programming interface.

OSHA has published a notice of proposed rulemaking to extend the date by which certain employers are required to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form 300A electronically from July 1, 2017, to December 1.

The CONN-OSHA Breakfast Roundtable Discussion Group meets the third Tuesday of every month from 8:15 to 9:45 a.m.

Preregistration is required. Contact John Able to be placed on the e-mail distribution list.

2. OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping, Dec. 5, 2017, 9 a.m. to noon

This interactive session introduces the requirements and procedures related to OSHA Injury & Illness Recordkeeping.

The class will help develop skills to accurately report occupational injuries and illnesses, and resources and reference materials will be provided.

If you are responsible for completing the documents required by this rule (OSHA 300, OSHA 300A and OSHA 301),  supervise the person that completes those forms, or are a safety committee member, this safety training class is a must.
