OSHA to hold reporting meeting

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will hold a public meeting Jan. 9 to discuss a proposed rule change that would publicize on-site workplace injury and illness data.

Under the proposed change, companies that must already track injuries and illnesses would be required to report that information either yearly or quarterly through a website. The information would then be available to the public.

The meeting will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, D.C., according to a news release.

Anyone interested in attending the meeting should register at http://www.regulations.gov. The deadline to request to attend the meeting is Dec. 13.

Written comments can be mailed to OSHA Docket Office, Docket No. OSHA-2013-0023, U.S. Department of Labor, Room N02625, 200 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, D.C., 20210. Comments may be submitted online at www.regulations.gov or faxed, if 10 pages or fewer, to 202-693-1648. The proposed change’s docket number is OSHA-2013-0023 and its regulatory info number is 1218-AC49. Either number must be included with comments.
