CHICAGO, Nov. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software, is offering a free guide and webinar to help EHS professionals understand their responsibilities under OSHA’s recent Electronic Reporting Rule, and how to use the agency’s new Injury Tracking Application (ITA) to submit Recordkeeping data online. The deadline for employers covered by the rule to upload their information via the ITA is December 1, 2017.
The “OSHA ITA Cheat Sheet” from VelocityEHS offers a complete overview of key requirements and submission deadlines – which will change in 2018 and then again in 2019 – and can be downloaded at no cost here.
VelocityEHS is also offering a live webinar that reviews the ITA submission process. The free session, titled “OSHA Injury Tracking Application (ITA): Understanding Reporting Obligations by the December 1, 2017 Deadline,” will be held on November 16, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EDT and address the most common questions employers have about submitting information and editing the data once it is uploaded to the ITA.
“When it comes to OSHA’s ITA, and the Electronic Reporting rule in general, many employers are still confused about what information they are required to submit, how to submit it and by when,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “The last thing we want to see is companies out of compliance because they didn’t understand their obligations. Our new OSHA ITA Cheat Sheet makes it easy to understand the key requirements and submission deadlines of the new rule, while our webinar provides safety professionals with a safe place to ask questions and see how technology can help them simplify their OSHA Recordkeeping responsibilities overall.”
EHS management software – like the VelocityEHS Incident Management solution – significantly streamlines the electronic reporting process by generating properly formatted injury and illness summary reports for instant electronic submission to the ITA. Furthermore, the simple-to-use VelocityEHS Mobile App allows workers to instantly report incidents, near misses and hazards as they occur – with or without internet connectivity – via a smartphone or tablet device. With a more robust system in place, employers can rest assured knowing the information being submitted is accurate and being correctly submitted to the ITA.
