While fall protection remains at the top of the violations list again for 2018, fall hazard training is also a top violation — coming in at number eight with 1,982 violations issued last year. OSHA’s final rule in 2016 extended the range of the walking and working surface standard for general industry and added a fall protection standard for general industry. In doing so, OSHA recognized that many general industry workers face comparable fall hazards as those in construction.
Few employers realize the importance of overseeing the workers’ compensation premium audit, which occurs at the end of each year to ensure you are paying the correct premium. After an audit, you could receive a surprise bill if the remuneration in work comp benefits paid to employees is found to be inaccurate — or you could receive a reimbursement. Auditors are susceptible to error, so be sure to classify benefits and wages appropriately, be prepared for the audit each year, and manage the process as much as possible.
Do you currently sit on any boards, or are you thinking of doing so? Board membership can take many forms, from small nonprofits to major corporations.

Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses throughout the year. This “record” is known to most of us as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) 300 or OSHA Log. February 1 marks the deadline for employers to tabulate their OSHA 300 Logs and post your OSHA 300A Summaries. March 2 marks the deadline for submitting Form 300A summary data to OSHA electronically via OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA).
