The Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor is responsible for overseeing the implementation of laws and regulations concerning occupational safety and health.
Reminder about OSHA's incident reporting requirements:
You are required to report any incident that results in three or more people being admitted to the hospital for more than observation or a single fatality, to OSHA within eight hours of the incident.
Failure to report will lead to an automatic, nonadjustable fine to your company. OSHA maintains a toll free, 24-hour, seven-day-a-week phone line for reporting, 800.321.OSHA.
