The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) continues in its initiative to provide employers and employees with online resources and tools designed, according to the DOL, “to help employers understand their responsibilities to report and record work-related injuries and illnesses” in accordance with OSHA regulations.
From the DOL’s press release announcing the new web tool:
The OSHA Recordkeeping Advisor helps employers and others responsible for organizational safety and health quickly determine whether an injury or illness is work-related; whether a work-related injury or illness needs to be recorded; and which provisions of the regulations apply when recording a work-related injury or illness. To help employers in making these determinations, the OSHA Recordkeeping Advisor relies on their responses to a series of pre-set questions.

Of course, nothing can really top the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division’s new timekeeping app, which gives employees the ability to keep their own records of time worked, which may or may not match the records provided to the employer.
