Recordkeeping Exemptions Advisory Committee
The Oregon School Employees Association (OSEA) has led a campaign to reduce the amount of preventable injuries resulting from violence against the school staff they represent. These efforts resulted in legislation passed in 2013 that requires school districts to establish a reporting policy for incidents resulting in injuries to district employees. In January of this year OSEA petitioned Oregon OSHA to initiate rulemaking to remove NAICS 6111 (Elementary and Secondary Schools), 6116 (Other Schools and Instruction), and 6117 (Educational Support Services), from exempt status of Table 1 in OAR 437-001-0700 Recording Workplace Injuries and Illnesses.
Oregon OSHA anticipates filing proposed rulemaking with the Secretary of State by April 14, 2017, with public hearings in statewide locations capturing large and small school districts. Comments will be received from the filing of the proposed rulemaking through approximately mid-June 2017. Adoption of final rules in June or July 2017, to become effective, tentatively, January 1, 2018.
