Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
OSHA is issuing a final rule to update the appendix to its Injury and Illness Recording and Reporting regulation. The appendix contains a list of industries that are partially exempt from requirements to keep records of work-related injuries and illnesses due to relatively low occupational injury and illness rates. The updated appendix is based on more recent injury and illness data and lists industry groups classified by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). The current appendix lists industries classified by Standard Industrial Classification (SIC). The final rule also revises the requirements for reporting work- related fatality, injury, and illness information to OSHA. The current regulation requires employers to report work-related fatalities and in- patient hospitalizations of three or more employees within eight hours of the event. The final rule retains the requirement for employers to report work-related fatalities to OSHA within eight hours of the event but amends the regulation to require employers to report all work- related in-patient hospitalizations, as well as amputations and losses of an eye, to OSHA within 24 hours of the event.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-09-17
Agency: Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs
The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) proposes amending the regulations implementing Executive Order 11246 that set forth the basic equal employment opportunity requirements that apply to Federal contractors and subcontractors. This Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) proposes including definitions for key words or terms used in Executive Order 13665. The NPRM also proposes amending the mandatory equal opportunity clauses that are included in Federal contracts and subcontracts and federally assisted construction contracts. The NPRM would delete the outdated reference to the ``Deputy Assistant Secretary'' and replace it with the ``Director of OFCCP.'' The NPRM also proposes to change the title of a section regarding the inclusion of the equal opportunity clause by reference and making conforming changes in the text. In addition, the NPRM would establish contractor defenses to allegations of violations of the nondiscrimination provision. The proposed rule also adds a section requiring Federal contractors to notify employees and job applicants of the nondiscrimination protection created by Executive Order 13665 using existing methods of communicating to applicants and employees.
