Employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthy workplace for their employees. OSHA's role ensures worksite and workforce safety by setting and enforcing specific standards at a worksite. From providing training to establishing partnerships, OSHA establishes and encourages employers to follow protective measures through continual process improvement.
Axiom Medical’s Injury Case Managers are registered nurses who are OSHA-trained and know the mission, protective standards, and workplace safety regulations, established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Our injury nurse case managers assist employers minimize OSHA recordable outcomes by providing immediate intervention.
"OSHA recordable" is a term for workplace injuries and illnesses that must be reported to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Employers must complete the Form 300 (Log of Work-related Injuries and Illnesses) and document each worksite incident case that results in hospitalization, medical treatment, loss of an eye, amputation, and fatality.
When a work-related injury or illness results in any of the following, it comes under OSHA recordable injury.
Axiom keeps 65% of all cases called in at the first-aid level, with an experienced case manager team set in place to assess the injury during its most crucial phase. As soon as a workplace injury is reported, our injury managers will work closely with your employee to provide first-aid care. We will be your employees' first point-of-contact, and the primary resource for quality and personalized medical treatment. Some of the highlights of our Injury Reporting program are:
OSHA establishes and enforces protective standards to minimize workplace hazards and promote employee safety. OSHA's primary mission is to ensure America's workers' safety and health by setting stringent safety guidelines and enforcing standards. Their approach is to train, outreach, and promote workplace safety awareness through various educational programs. OSHA and its state partners' inspectors and consultants, complaint investigators, and other support personnel work closely with employers in several industries to ensure the workforces' health and safety.
Employers with ten or fewer employees are exempt from routinely reporting or keeping injury and illness records. However, employers with more than ten employees are legally required to record and register all serious work-related injuries and illnesses with an exemption of specific low-risk industries. However, minor injuries requiring only first aid, do not have to be recorded.
The recorded information helps employers, employees, and OSHA to evaluate workplace safety, understand and avoid workplace hazards, and implement worker protections to prevent, reduce, and eliminate future workplace injuries and illnesses.
