Fall protection remains OSHA’s most frequently cited violation

Fall protection has been number one for the past few years on the annual list of workplace violations released by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). In fact, “Fall Protection – General Requirements” tops the current list by a wide margin with 6,072 violations. Falls are among the most common causes of serious work related injuries and deaths. Employers must set up the work place to prevent employees from falling off of overhead platforms, elevated work stations or into holes in the floor and walls. 

Counting plans: What is a bundled wrap document, and should I have one?

Every health and welfare plan (health, dental, vision, short-term disability, long-term disability, AD&D, Health FSA, etc.) subject to ERISA that has 100 or more participants on the first day of the plan year is required to file a Form 5500 with the federal Department of Labor (DOL) seven months after the end of the plan year. There’s a lot of to unpack in that statement, but a hidden issue that often gets overlooked is just how many plans are there.

OSHA electronic reporting deadline is July 1, 2018

Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to record serious work-related injuries and illnesses through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA’s) Form 300A. This information is used to evaluate and improve workplace safety, identify potential hazards and increase worker protections to lessen exposures where necessary.
