While it is most employer’s goal to maintain a safe workplace in every way possible, accidents and injuries may still occur when hazards are present. As a result of this, OSHA (Standard 29 CFR 1904) requires that businesses with more than 10 employees and/or in specific industries create and maintain a record of on-the-job illnesses and injuries. Doing so is not only required by law, but It is also an effective way to identify and minimize potential health and injury risks to ensure employee safety. Designed for supervisors, managers, and other employees tasked with ensuring compliance, the Safety Assure app for OSHA Recordkeeping and Reporting for All Industries covers all the essential aspects of setting up and maintaining a reporting system to stay compliance with OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1904.

In May 2016, OSHA announced changes to the reporting and recordkeeping standard to Improve Tracking of Workplace Illness and Injuries, which require certain employers to electronically submit injury and illness data that they are already required to record on their onsite OSHA injury and illness forms. These changes are applicable to establishments with 250 employees or more, or employers with 20-249 employees in certain high-risk industries. These new requirements came into effect as of January 1, 2017, for workplaces under federal OSHA jurisdiction.
