As part of an increased concern for under recording and under reporting of workplace injuries and illnesses, the US OSHA has announced a yearlong program of enhanced scrutiny of OSHA 300 logs and record keeping practices by employers in high hazard industries. To help Maine employers maintain accurate records, SafetyWorks!, MDOL’s training and consultation program, offers Recordkeeping training to all Maine employers, at no cost. Upcoming classes are scheduled in Bangor and Portland in October and November. To see a current list of all SafetyWorks! classes, please visit www.safetyworksmaine.com.
