OSHA requires most employers to maintain a record of certain injuries and illnesses that occur while in the work environment. Keeping accurate injury and illness records is one of the greatest challenges facing employers today due to the complexities of the OSHA recordkeeping standard 29 CFR 1904.

Currently there is a National Emphasis Program (CPL 02-09-08) on injury and illness recordkeeping which has resulted in fines exceeding 1.2 million dollars to employers.

An OSHA recordkeeping expert from The EI Group, Inc. (EI) can conduct an audit of your injury and illness records and provide a confidential, detailed report indicating what cases should have been recorded on the OSHA Form 300, as well as what cases, if any, should not have been recorded. Taking this simple step today can help you avoid costly OSHA penatlies in the future.

EI’s safety experts can also support your health and safety system initiatives by providing the following services:

  • Complete Health and Safety System Audit

Safety on Wheels: Are Your Golf Carts Covered Under OSHA Regulations?

Safety on Wheels: Are Your Golf Carts Covered Under OSHA Regulations?

Imagine you’re a safety professional at a sprawling outdoor industrial facility. The site is so vast that instead of walking, you use a traditional golf cart to get around. One day, there’s an incident—a worker is caught between the golf cart and a piece of equipment, or the golf cart rolls over someone, resulting in serious injuries. As you address the immediate concerns and ensure the injured worker receives proper medical care, you start asking yourself: Is the golf cart covered under OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.178 powered industrial truck regulation? Was the operator properly trained? Was the golf cart properly maintained? Was the load capacity exceeded? What could happen next as the result of an accident?
