To determine which TSCA inventory chemicals are active and which are inactive, US EPA has proposed a “retrospective electronic notification” for chemicals manufactured/imported between June 2006 and June 2016 (approximately).
With this Final Rule, OSHA clarifies that keeping complete and accurate records of workplace injuries and illnesses is an “ongoing obligation” for employers.
In order to obtain more information about workplace injuries and illness, OSHA would like to require establishments with more than 250 employees that are already keeping OSH 300 logs to submit copies of their 300 and 301 forms each year.
OSHA last week announced that, until December 1, 2016, it will not enforce new anti-retaliation provisions included in a workplace injury and illness reporting rule finalized earlier this year.
For violations of US EPA chemical reporting requirements under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), a Rhode Island facility that manufactures metal products like filler metals, fluxes, products for brazing and soldering metals, and more will pay a $69,265 fine.
US EPA has proposed changes to the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) chemical reporting requirements intended in part to align the TSCA rules with OSHA’s Hazard Communication, or “HazCom,” Standard (HCS) and other best safety practices.
US EPA has announced it will extend the deadline for chemical manufacturers, importers, and processors who must report chemical data under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) from September 30 to October 31, 2016.
OSHA has delayed enforcement of anti-retaliatory provisions in its new injury and illness reporting rule for employers. Under the new rule, announced in May, employers must report annually the injury and illness data collected on forms like the OSHA 300, 300A, and 301. OSHA will then make some of this information available to the public.
Earlier this year, OSHA published a Final Rule that, among other things, requires employers to file annual electronic reports of injury and illness data. In that Final Rule, OSHA made it clear that the Administration plans to share employer injury and illness information it receives with the public via the Internet.
In today’s Federal Register, OSHA posted a Final Rule that requires employers to file annual electronic reports of injury and illness data. OSHA plans to publish the injury and illness data it receives on a public website—but will not publish personal identifying information about individual employees.
