Nevada Employers Must Report Work Fatalities Within 8 Hours and Specified Events in 24 Hours: OSHA

Employers will now be required to report all work-related fatalities within 8 hours and all in-patient hospitalizations, amputations, and losses of an eye within 24 hours of finding about the incident, per a 2015 OSHA release. OSHA states, that “[p]reviously, employers were required to report all workplace fatalities and when three or more workers were hospitalized in the same incident.”

OSHA advises that, “Employers have three options for reporting these severe incidents to OSHA. They can call their nearest area office during normal business hours, call the 24-hour OSHA hotline at 1-800-321-OSHA (1-800-321-6742), or they can report online at www.osha.gov/report_online.
