OSHA Releasing New Farm Safety Rules

December 28, 2016 10:05 AM

A new rule could change the way employers record injury and illness to farm workers.

The rule released earlier this month by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) will go into effect mid-January.

It says employers need to keep good and accurate records on any employee injuries or illnesses. They also need to file those records for up to five years.

Many farmers are subject to the regulations, particularly if they have more than 10 employees. However, this rule could come under review by lawmakers.
