41 Oregon OSHA Topic Specific Checklists

One month after the initial deadline for employers to electronically submit their 2016 injury and illness records online, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will finally launch the Injury Tracking Application (ITA) on Aug. 1, 2017.  This Web-based form allows employers to electronically submit required injury and illness data from their completed 2016 OSHA Form 300A. The application will be accessible from the ITA webpage.


Last month, OSHA published a notice of proposed rulemaking to extend the deadline for submitting the information from July 1, to Dec. 1, 2017, to allow affected entities sufficient time to familiarize themselves with the electronic reporting system, and to provide the new administration an opportunity to review the new electronic reporting requirements prior to their implementation. 


Oregon OSHA had originally adopted the federal reporting rules with the same July 1, 2017, submission date. However, since federal OSHA has now proposed an extension, we will have to wait and see what OR-OSHA does if the extension is formally adopted.  State OSHA plans have up to 6 months to adopt federal rules.


Until then, electrical contractors with more than 20 employees should get familiar with the ITA webpage and the reporting process.  Employers with more than 249 employees will eventually be required to submit more information than those with 249 or less.


The data submission process involves four steps: (1) Creating an establishment; (2) adding 300A summary data; (3) submitting data to OSHA; and (4) reviewing the confirmation email. The secure website offers three options for data submission. One option will enable users to manually enter data into a web form. Another option will give users the ability to upload a CSV file to process single or multiple establishments at the same time. A third option will allow users of automated recordkeeping systems to transmit data electronically via an application programming interface.


The ITA webpage also includes information on reporting requirements, a list of frequently asked questions and a link to request assistance with completing the form. 

Joint Safety Committee

NECA - IBEW Joint Safety Committee Meeting Minutes
IBEW Local 48 labor representatives and Oregon-Columbia Chapter NECA Safety Managers meet monthly to discuss jobsite safety concerns, review new safety regulations and develop industry best practices to elevate safety for our industry.  The committee was recognized at the 2009 Oregon Governor's Occupational Safety and Health Conference for their achievements in working together to solve difficult safety challenges.  Committee meetings every other evenly numbered month, on the third Thursday at 2:30 PM in the NIETC conference room.

Toolbox Talks

Toolbox1

Safety Tool Box Talks are used in the workplace to address site specific safety concerns.  They can be used to document initial and refresher training as well as inform other subs or GCs of workplace safety concerns.  The NIETC Safety Talks are organized by topic and month but can be used in any manner that best fits your needs. 

Safety Certifications

Cert1

Within OSHA standards there are many applications that require employers to train their employees to different levels of competency depending upon the degree of hazard, exposure or level of responsibility.  Examples include general awareness training, competent person training, qualified person training and proof of training and competency through a formal certification process.  The NIETC provides a wide variety of safety training, some of which qualifies or certifies the students to perform specific tasks.
