OSHAFormz App Provides OSHA Injury Tracking and Record Keeping

Tue Dec 12, 2017

151311735637068.pngMobile Formz announced the release of a mobile app called OSHAFormz. The goal of OSHAFormz is to help organizations be fully compliant with OSHA regulations in capturing injury and illness information and better monitor remote work sites and incidents more accurately to make them safer for employees. The app is designed to meet a U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rule regarding electronic injury and illness recordkeeping data submissions. The app is designed to aid field supervisors and safety officers in recording and tracking workplace injuries as well as illnesses using tablets and smart phones.

“The new rule of OSHA directs employers to take internal data about work-related illnesses and injuries, and submit this information to OSHA for publication on a website that would be made available to the general public,” says an OSHA spokesperson according to Mobile Formz. The OSHAFormz app records incidents, automatically calculates summary totals and creates PDF reports in the format of OSHA forms 300, 300A and 301.

In addition, the Mobile Formz says the OSHAFormz mobile app has other features and benefits. The app is designed to work without any internet connection. Incident or injury information can be collected at the exact time and location of a reportable incident rather than days later. Businesses with 20 or more employees in certain high-risk industries required to electronically submit incidents and injuries reports to OSHA can immensely benefit with this app, according to Mobile Formz.

The OSHAFormz app is available for download on iTunes for iPhones and iPads now and Android version will be available in the first quarter of 2018.
