The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) continues to target hospitals and healthcare organizations for increased inspections related to OSHA’s National Emphasis Program (NEP), which aims to protect workers in high-risk settings from COVID-19. The NEP has been extended and is still in effect. As a result, hospitals and healthcare organizations are at a higher risk of having an OSHA Compliance Safety and Health Officer (CSHO) show up at their facility to conduct a focused inspection. The CSHO typically requests all OSHA recordkeeping documents before the inspection. Organizations lacking accurate and complete OSHA recordkeeping documents may be subject to OSHA citations resulting in costly fines. 
 
This webinar will provide up-to-date information on OSHA recordkeeping requirements, including OSHA’s COVID-19 directives.
