Occupational Injury and Illness Recording and Reporting Requirements-NAICS Update and Reporting Revisions
Document Number: 2014-21514
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-18
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.
