August 31, Government Affairs Update

In 2013, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a proposed rule to improve the tracking of workplace injuries and illnesses through the electronic collection of establishment-specific injury and illness data. After receiving comments on the proposal, OSHA issued the final rule that became effective January 1, 2017 (Occupational Safety and Health Administration 29 CFR Part 1904). More information on the final rule is available here. Although ASCs are partially exempt from some of the requirements in the rule, facilities are subject to a requirement that prohibits employers from discouraging workers from reporting an injury or illness.

More information on what ASCs are required to do can be found here.
