UL EHS Sustainability, an industry leader in occupational health and safety software and training, announced a free software tool that will help streamline OSHA reporting requirements. The online tool, accessible at the UL EHS Sustainability website (registration required), is built on the PureOHS platform, UL’s proprietary software solution that streamlines the data management process. With the new tool, users enter injury data once and receive outputs for all necessary forms required by OSHA.
“Tabulating data by hand or in spreadsheets is no longer the best way to keep track of workplace illness and injury. Companies in leading health and safety cultures have found that the quickest and most effective option is to maintain injury data in an automated program,” said Mark Ward, general manager of UL EHS Sustainability. “It ensures that injury data is recorded accurately and can be accessed easily. Further, digital data can be more easily analyzed within your organization to look for leading indicators that might further improve your safety culture.”
The impetus for this offering is a rule change within OSHA that requires establishments with 250 or more employees to submit their workplace injury forms electronically. Forms 300, 300A, and 301 — which summarize job-related injuries and illnesses logged during the 2017 calendar year — all must be digitally provided to OSHA on or before July 1, 2018. Establishments with 20-249 workers in certain high-injury rate industries will need to electronically submit Form 300A by that same time.
