OSHA Updates Recordkeeping Rule
On September 18, 2014, OSHA updated the Recordkeeping Rule – Effective January 1, 2015 for all Establishments completing 300 Log Recordkeeping.
OSHA’s New Updated Recordkeeping Rule includes two major changes:
OSHA defines an amputation as a traumatic loss of a limb or other external body part to include a part that has been severed, cut off, amputated (completely or partially); finger amputations with or without bone loss; medical amputation from irreparable damage; and amputations that have been medically reattached.
