The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued final rule changes to improve tracking of workplace injuries and illnesses.

•    Electronic Reporting of OSHA Recordkeeping
•    Post-Incident Drug Testing

About Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA):

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) was passed to prevent workers from being killed or seriously harmed at work. The law requires employers to provide their employees with working conditions that are free of known dangers. The Act created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which sets and enforces protective workplace safety and health standards.
