Access the OSHA website for the new 2002 recordkeeping rule and review the information contained there. Discuss at least one significant aspect (change) of the new rule. Relate how that aspect, or any other change associated with the new rule, has come to influence your workplace since its adoption in 2002. Was the effect positive or negative? Has the accident or injury rate at your workplace risen or declined since that time? If you have not seen any aspect of change in your workplace since the new rule went into effect – why do you think that happened? Should/could the safety supervisor have done a better job of training or informing the employees?

Please note my workplace is a state agency within the State of Florida

The OSH Act excludes the employees of state governments. However by Gov. Jeb Bush’s Governor’s Executive Order, No. 2000-292, he directed all State agencies in Florida to comply with Subparts C through T and Z of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) Subparts, 29 CFR Part 1910, as revised July 1, 1993. My agency also requires employees to voluntarily comply with the most current OSHA standards found in 29 CFR Parts 1926, and 1928.51.

The Florida Department of Financial Services, Division of Risk Management stipulates what should be recorded and reported for self insurance purposes. Its’ policies mirror the OSH recordkeeping but not as strict or detailed for compliance.
