BWC Automated Phone System Upgrades Security

Businesses and injured workers who use the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation’s automated phone system, 1-800-644-6292, will soon see improved security to better protect their sensitive information.
Beginning Feb. 15, 2017, callers will need more than just their policy or claim number. Injured workers will also be asked for the last four digits of their social security number and their date of injury. Businesses will also be asked for their federal tax ID number (FEIN or SSN) and the ZIP code for the mailing address on the policy.
We encourage callers to have this information handy when they call. While it may require a few more taps of the finger, they can feel confident their sensitive information is more secure.

Are your OSHA logs ready? New electronic filing means covered employers now have two deadlines.

Are your OSHA logs ready?

New electronic filing means covered employers now have two deadlines.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that covered employers maintain records of occupational injuries and illnesses. A summary of those records must be posted by Feb. 1st each year. Earlier this year (May 12, 2016), OSHA published its final rule on a new requirement for employers to also submit OSHA records electronically through the OSHA website. The electronic 300A Summary report must be submitted for the 2016 calendar year by July 1, 2017.

This means employers now must meet two requirements/deadlines: Feb. 1 for the 300A paper summary and July 1 for the electronic version of the 300A summary.

Did you know?

  • Not all Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) workers’ comp claims are OSHA log recordable.
  • Not all emergency room visits are OSHA log recordable.
  • Non-compliance in recordkeeping and submission delays can cost your company thousands of dollars.
  • Employers are required to retain their current records plus records from the previous five years.

OSHA uses records of injuries and illnesses to determine the effectiveness of existing safety and health standards. Sheakley can help you understand the requirements of OSHA Recordkeeping, industries that are partially exempt from recordkeeping forms, and the fines associated with non-compliance.
