Did you know you have to report hospitalizations to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration? Well, now you do. No one likes or wants on-the-job injuries, but it’s critical companies know what their responsibilities are when an injury happens. This week, Ask Brock takes a question from a company cited for an unreported hospitalization. It’s Ask Brock 213.

Reporting, of course, is important. But a worker got hurt and hospitalized, and that means jobsite safety processes may need a fresh look.

“We need to have a good safety program,” Yordy says. “We need to understand what happened and how we got someone hospitalized this week.”

He urges every drilling and construction company to take a proactive stance on OSHA compliance. Set up a no-cost, on-site safety consultation at www.osha.gov/consultation.
