  • At the start of 2015, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) made several changes to its regulations requiring employers to report certain work-related injuries and illnesses. Under the previous rule, employers had to report all work-related fatalities, as well as hospitalizations of three or more employees, within eight hours. With the new changes, in addition to reporting fatalities within eight hours, employers must report all work-related hospitalizations, amputations, and losses of an eye within 24 hours.
