The Kentucky OSHA law reporting procedure has been updated. Previously, the February 2020 version stated as such:

Employers must report to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health Compliance any incident that results in a fatality or the hospitalization of 3 or more employees within 8 hours from when the incident is reported to the employer, the employer’s agent, or another employee. Incidents resulting in the loss of an eye, an amputation, or the in-patient hospitalization of 1 or 2 employees must be reported to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health Compliance within 72 hours from when the incident is reported to the employer, the employer’s agent, or another employee.

Currently, the most recent update as of September 2021 now states:

Employers must report to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health Compliance the work-related death of an employee, including death resulting from a heart attack, within 8 hours from when the incident is reported to the employer, the employer’s agent, or another employee. Work-related incidents resulting in the loss of an eye, an amputation, or the in-patient hospitalization of an employee, including hospitalization resulting from a heart attack, must be reported to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health Compliance within 72 hours from when the incident is reported to the employer, the employer’s agent, or another employee.

This is a mandatory update to the Kentucky labor laws and employers must have up-to-date postings to stay in compliance or else risk getting fined during audits. Moving forward, all our Kentucky posters will be printed with this update.
