MentorHealth to Present Webinar on "Key Concepts of OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping"

Fremont, California (PressExposure) April 24, 2013 -- OSHA has clearly defined regulations relating to reporting of injuries and illnesses of employees. Yet, failure to properly report these and thoroughly comply with the annual posting requirements continue to be among the 10 most cited violations issued by OSHA inspectors. Why does this happen? It is because employers usually do not have a grasp of the reporting requirements.

It will also offer insights into what has to go into annual reporting. The many years of knowledge in the industry that the expert, Dr. Kenneth S.
