OSHA’s proposal would lead to unreported workplace incidents, RIMS says

A proposal filed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has met with opposition from different groups, including the Risk & Insurance Management Society Inc. (RIMS), an online report stated Monday, March 17.

OSHA has proposed that businesses with more than 250 employees should electronically report all workplace incidents for more efficient and timely access to incident data. In an interview, however, RIMS stated that it believes OSHA’s proposal might cause employers to under report workplace incidents in order to have a more favorable workplace accident record.

Several business groups have also expressed their opposition, saying that the measure might lead to employers being susceptible to serious privacy matters.

Suffering a workplace injury can be extremely difficult, physically and financially. However, when your company has workers’ compensation insurance, you should be able to get much-needed financial support.
