EHS on Tap: E19 Update on Electronic Recordkeeping, Anti-Retaliation under OSHA’s Injury and Illness Rule

All employers required to keep injury and illness records are impacted by OSHA’s recent workplace injuries and illnesses rule, which requires certain employers to electronically submit data and prohibits employers from discouraging workers from reporting an injury or illness. Many believe the antiretaliation provision of the rule will be eliminated as soon as OSHA leadership moves in. But what about the electronic submission of records and posting the data? And are the antiretaliation provisions really in danger?

On this episode of EHS on Tap, we discuss the future of OSHA’s recordkeeping requirements with Tressi Cordaro. Tressi is a partner in the Washington, D.C., region office of Jackson Lewis PC., where she advises and represents employers on occupational safety and health matters before federal and state OSHA enforcement agencies.
