Webinar offered on complying with OSHA's 1904 Standard

Dec. 6, 2012 | 0 comments

Under its 1904 standard, the federal Occupational and Health Safety Administration (OSHA) requires all agricultural businesses that had more than 10 employees at any time during the past calendar year to keep and report injury and illness records.

The main relevant forms are 300 and 300A.

A Webinar will be offered from 1-2:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13 for the agricultural businesses facing this requirement. The Webinar is designed for owners, managers, or employees with safety program responsibilities.

There is a Monday, Dec. 10 deadline to register for the Webinar. To register, send an e-mail to skjolaas@wisc.edu with "Webinar Registration" in the subject line.

Registrants will be asked for their name, job position, farm or business name, mailing address for the business, daytime phone number, and e-mail address. They should indicate if they want to take part in the Webinar at their home office or at a coordinated site.

Participating in the webinar at one's office or home requires a computer with sound capability (speakers, headset, and microphone), an operating system supported by Blackboard, and an installation of Java.

To check for that connection, go to http://support.blackboardcollaborate.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=8336&task=knowledge&questionID=1473.

A second option is to go to a county Extension Service office or other coordinated site. Webinar registrants who ask for that option will be advised on the sites most conveniently available to them.

The webinar presenters will be OSHA Compliance Assistance Specialist Kelly Bubolz of the Appleton area office and University of Wisconsin Center for Agricultural Safety and Health Interim Director Cheryl Skjolaas. The Extension Service's Dairy Team is also a co-sponsor of the webinar.

An earlier presentation on OSHA's 1904 Standard was conducted on Thursday, Dec. 6. It consisted of a review by Eau Claire area OSHA compliance assistance specialist Mary Bauer of the findings during inspections on several Wisconsin dairy farms during the past year.

Potential changes for a continuation of the inspection program in 2013 were also outlined. For more information, call Skjolaas at 608-265-0568 or e-mail skjolaas@wisc.edu.
