OSHA Requirements When a Worker Experiences a Job-Related Injury or Illness
Over the past three decades, occupational injuries and illnesses in the U.S.have declined by 42 percent,even though employment has more than doubled. Nevertheless, every year, nearly five million workers experience an occupational injury or ilness on the job. More than half of these injuries and illnesses are severe enough to cause the worker to spend time away from work.
OSHA, along with safety and health professionals around the Nation, is working with employers and employees to move toward zero injuries and illnesses in U.S. workplaces And the agency will not be satisfied until every worker in America goes home safe and sound each day...
When a worker is killed on the job and/or three or more workers are hospitalized, the employer covered by OSHA must report to the agency with in eight hours. Fatal heart attacks also must be reported. Employer can call the nearest OSHA area office or the agency''s toll free number 800-321-OSHA (6742) to provide this information.
Providing First Aid
Employers who can not reach a hospital, infirmary or clinic within a reasonable amount of time must be prepared to provide first aid to workers who experience injuries or illnesses on the job. OSHA requires that adequate first aid supplies must be readily available and that some one must be adequately trained to render first aid.
The agency also encourages employers to consider acquiring automated external defibrillators (AEDs)-medical devices designed to revive victims of sudden cardiac arrest. These devices analyze a victim's heart rhythm and deliver an electric shock to restore heart rhythm to normal. Battery AEDs are compact, lightweight, portable, safe and easy to use. Having them onsite can save precious time and improve survival odds because they can be used before emergency medical service personnel arrive.
