|The regulation in question, Occupational Injury and Illness Recording and Reporting Requirements - Reporting Fatalities, Hospitalizations, Amputations, and Losses of an Eye As a Result of Work-related Incidents to OSHA, 16VAC25-85-1904.39, requires employers with more than ten employees in most industries to report all work-related fatalities and work-related incidents within certain specified timeframes. These amendments will result in the VOSH standard being identical to the 2014 federal OSHA requirements for employers to report certain work-related injury and illnesses. The affected timeframes requested for amendment in order to become OSHA-identical are listed below: - Every in-patient hospitalization resulting from a work-related incident must be reported within twenty- four (24) hours of the hospitalization; - All amputations resulting from work-related incidents, resulting from a work-related incident must be reported within twenty-four (24) hours of the incident; - Each loss of an eye resulting from a work-related incident must be reported within twenty-four (24) hours of the incident.
