OSHA injury, illness recordkeeping
Injury and illness recordkeeping has always been an important part of OSHA's workplace safety efforts. Accurate counting of workplace injuries and illnesses is essential to identify and address safety and health hazards and to ensure that workers receive appropriate medical treatment.
And with the renewed Congressional and Agency attention on workplace injuries and illness, the accuracy of your records is more important than ever. During an OSHA inspection, the Compliance Officer will usually ask to look at the last three year's worth of OSHA 300 Logs.
It's also time to complete and post OSHA's Form 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses even if there were no work-related injuries or illnesses during the year.
Given that your program may come under intense OSHA scrutiny in the near future, how confident are you that your records would pass the test?

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
