Groups oppose OSHA’s proposed reporting rule
The Risk & Insurance Management Society Inc. (RIMS) recently issued a letter to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on Monday, March 10 opposing OSHA’s new proposal to require employers with more than 250 employees to electronically report any injury at work.
OSHA said electronic reporting would allow up-to-date and efficient access to accident data by the public. However, RIMS said it would compel employers not to report minor work-related injuries to maintain low workplace accident rates.
Groups opposing the bill also stated it would make the employers vulnerable to privacy concerns.
