    Washington – To assist employers with federal reporting requirements for occupational injuries and illnesses, OSHA has launched an online tool.

    The OSHA Recordkeeping Advisor asks users a series of questions to help determine whether an injury is work-related, whether it needs to be recorded and what regulatory provisions apply in recording the case, among other forms of assistance.

    The agency stressed that although the advisor is intended to assist employers, it is not a substitute for OSHA regulations.
