There is really no doubt that OSHA is picking up the pace with its inspections and they are quick to point violations at any time. I keep regular tabs through a couple of blog sites and using Google alerts to keep me posted on current litigation. No business is immune and certainly property management companies need to make sure they are compliant.
The OSHA form 300 which is entitled Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses is a requirement for all businesses to keep a log of work-related injuries and illnesses and to note the extent and severity of each case. When an incident occurs, you must Log the specific details about what happened and how it happened. A separate form (300A) is a summary and shows the totals for the year in each category.
Property Management companies are required to keep a log for each site. So the question is are you? This blog post is really open for some discussion and sharing your experiences. Have any of you run into any issues with OSHA in regards to this form? What policies and procedures do you have in order to make sure you are compliant? Do you have any tips you can share that enable your communities to effectively follow through on this OSHA standard?
