OSHA to audit recordkeeping

Nevada OSHA said last week it has adopted federal OSHA's Recordkeeping National Emphasis Program and will begin auditing Nevada's employers.

The program launched by the federal agency in September is designed to determine if employers are under-reporting workplace injuries and illnesses.

Steve Coffield, chief administrative officer for Nevada OSHA, said audits will include a records review, employee interviews, and limited inspections of workplaces. Industries with high injury and illness rates will be audited first, he said.
