Staffing firm professionals should be acutely aware of the new electronic filing requirements from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration that will go into effect Jan. 1, 2017. However, staffing professionals could be missing the bigger picture. There are also new record-keeping procedures, effective Aug. 10, that could spell trouble for firms whose employees do not understand the new rules and therefore do comply with them. These firms would thus be subjected to broad citations that encompass issues such as whistleblower policies and drug testing. Staffing professionals will get crucial information from Ed Foulke Jr., a legal expert and a former head of OSHA, as he reviews the new requirements.

During this webinar attendees will

  • Learn who is responsible for reporting injuries and illnesses in complicated joint employment situations
  • Understand the nuances in the new reporting procedures
  • Hear how broader regulations could put firms at risk for more citations
  • Get tips on how to educate clients on the new procedures
  • Receive a record-keeping worksheet that will help their firms steer clear of citations
