On May 12, 2016 the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published new final rules on discrimination and injury and illness reporting: 81 Fed. Reg. 29624. This new rule, which took effect in most aspects on Aug. 10, 2016, forces employers to revisit practices on drug testing, safety incentive programs, and injury reporting, and will force many employers to modify their existing practices to be compliant.
In this program, Long-Term Living's resident safety and security expert Steven Wilder will break down this new rule and help companies understand the rule and the changes they may have to make in order to be compliant in both policy and practice.
- Define the implementation dates of the various parts of the new OSHA rule
- Explain changes in post-injury drug testing practices
- Discuss changes in and limitations on safety incentive programs
- Apply upcoming electronic reporting requirements
