Simple, "Hot Work... Fire Watch" ...Any Question?

OSHA's revision to the recordkeeping rule (link) expands the list of severe injuries that all covered employers must report to OSHA.

Reporting Fatalities and Severe Injuries/Illnesses

What am I required to report under the new rule as of January 1, 2015?

Previously, employers had to report the following events to OSHA:
◾All work-related fatalities
◾All work-related hospitalizations of three or more employees

Now, employers have to report the following events to OSHA:
◾All work-related fatalities
◾All work-related in-patient hospitalizations of one or more
employees
◾All work-related amputations
◾All work-related losses of an eye

Employers must report work-related fatalities within 8 hours of finding out about it.

For any in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or eye loss employers must report the incident within 24 hours of learning about it.

Only fatalities occurring within 30 days of the work-related incident must be reported to OSHA. Further, for an inpatient hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye, then incidents must be reported to OSHA only if they occur within 24 hours of the work-related incident.

Employers have three options for reporting the event:
1.By telephone to the nearest OSHA Area Office during normal business hours.
2.By telephone to the 24-hour OSHA hotline (1-800-321-OSHA or 1-800-321-6742).
3.OSHA is developing a new means of reporting events electronically, which will be released soon and accessible on OSHA's website.

OSHA OFFERS TIPS TO PROTECT WORKERS IN COLD ENVIRONMENTS
Working in cold environments can be dangerous. More than 700 people die of hypothermia each year in the United States. To help protect workers in cold environments, OSHA reminds employers and workers to take simple precautions, such as those listed on OSHA's Cold Stress Card
Prolonged exposure to freezing or cold temperatures can result in health problems such as trench foot, frostbite and hypothermia. When the body is unable to warm itself, serious cold-related illnesses and injuries may occur, and permanent tissue damage and death may result.

Employers and workers in construction, commercial fishing, maritime and agriculture need to take precautions and learn how to prevent and treat cold-related disorders. Death can result very quickly in cases of cold water immersion.

More information about cold and cold hazards can be found on OSHA's website, www.osha.gov and at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) www.cdc.gov and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) www.cdc.gov/niosh
