RV Learning Center/KPA Webinar to cover OSHA Reporting Requirements

Wed Feb 21, 2018

151561852680247.pngThe RV Learning Center, in conjunction with KPA will host a webinar on OSHA reporting requirements from 2 to 3 p.m. EST Feb. 28.

There have been some changes to rules at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, according to the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association. For instance, in 2017, certain employers were required to electronically submit their 2016 300A Form on OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA) by Dec. 31. This February, employers must post their 2017 OSHA 300A Form at their workplace, and also electronically submit that information by July 1, 2018.

Attendees will learn:
• What incidents are “OSHA-recordable”
• The newest developments in the OSHA 300A regulations
• Which part(s) of your establishment is required to report

The event is free to RVDA members, who can register by CLICKING HERE. Members unable to attend the live event can register and then receive links to the materials for later viewing.
