The Final Rule changed other elements of the OSHA injury reporting rules as well, including revising the list of partially exempt industries. To read more about the Final Rule, read OSHA Injury & Illness Recordkeeping Changes.
Year One Brings 10,000 Severe Injury Reports
In a report released on March 17, 2016, OSHA Assistant Secretary David Michaels shows that since becoming effective January 1, 2015, the new rule compelled employers to report 10,388 incidents involving severe work related injuries. This large number does not include severe injuries in states not covered under Federal OSHA reporting rules.
The manufacturing industry represented 26% of hospitalization cases reported under the new requirements and more than 50% of the amputations, according to the report.
OSHA provides a breakdown of the total reports, organized by industry, in a separate document named “Number of Severe Injury Reports Received by OSHA by Industry, 2015.”

More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.
Tom Bush, Jr.
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
Lion courses are the standard to which all other workshops should strive for!
Registered Environmental Health Specialist
My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
This is a very informative training compared to others. It covers everything I expect to learn and even a lot of new things.
Waste Management Professional
Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
