How would companies be held accountable for not correcting safety violations that result in repeated worker injuries if record keeping is only required for six months? That's useless. Repeat injuries should be corrected in the workplace long before the next one occurs, and in order to fully assess accountability to reducing risk within the workplace, a historical review of OSHA logs is necessary. If in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016, an employer records the same injury type in the same job function, a citation should be considered accountability beyond paying for W/C injuries through their insurance claim process. In most cases, the company knows about the unsafe conditions and or behaviors that are occurring and they do little to prevent the next injury from happening. Vote NO on eliminating this perfectly reasonable and in no way onerous rule!
