Philadelphia (PRWEB) December 9, 2008
TRA (http://www.industrysafe.com) is pleased to announce a free guidance document on using IndustrySafe Safety Management Software to complete OSHA logs. IndustrySafe Safety Management Software provides organizations with web-based safety data management tools including incident tracking, OSHA recordkeeping, and OSHA logs, inspections, training tracking, hazards, behavioral based safety, claims, corrective actions and more.
TRA recognizes that the annual completion of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) logs for almost all organizations in the United States can be a regulatory and compliance burden. An OSHA log (or rather several OSHA logs known as the 300, 301, and 300A) is used to report work-related employee injuries and illnesses (and is required for most United States organizations with more than 10 employees). The OSHA 300A log is required to be available for employee viewing from February 1st to April 30th for incidents occurring with the previous year. The OSHA logs include information about the employee injuries including the number of days away from work as well as the number of days for which an employee had restricted or transferred duty due to the injury and illness. IndustrySafe Safety Management Software reduces this burden by automatically completing the OSHA logs for the organizations using the system.
While IndustrySafe is an easy to use system that allows for easy entry of incidents, including those incidents that are OSHA reportable, TRA recognized that its clients (and potential) clients are continually trying to do more with less. End of the Year reporting of environmental health and safety statistics can be time consuming and stressful. "This easy to use guidance document highlights the key features of OSHA reporting that are available with the IndustrySafe system" explains, Clare Epstein, Vice President of Information Technology for TRA. She continues, "While OSHA reporting appears to be relatively straight forward; for organizations with multiple locations and multiple OSHA reportable injuries, there are nuances to the OSHA reporting that IndustrySafe handles appropriately and we wanted one easy-to-use client friendly guidance document to highlight those nuances."
IndustrySafe Safety Software also allows for the automatic calculation of Total Case Incident Rates (TCIR) and Days Away Restricted Transfer Rate (DART). TCIR and DART rates are used by organizations to compare their injury and illness rates over time and to organizations in similar industries. "The use of IndustrySafe to calculate TCIR and DART rates is a time saving feature that our clients identify as very valuable", states Gabriel Tompkins, TRA's Project Manager. The IndustrySafe OSHA guidance document also provides detail on the IndustrySafe calculation of DART and TCIR rates.
The guidance document is available free for all clients and potential clients and is available on the IndustrySafe website at http://industrysafe.com/resources/guidance_document.pdf . TRA is also offering free webinars available to anyone interesting in learning how IndustrySafe Safety Software can assist with OSHA log reporting.
