Did you know that when a workplace accident occurs, the company doesn't have to inform the Occupational Safety and Health Administration unless an employee is killed or at least three workers are hospitalized for their injuries? That's the way the current rule is drawn up -- but in a major revision to the rule, companies will now also be required to inform OSHA if a worker suffers an amputation or loses an eye in a workplace accident.
Obviously this is a grim topic, and you may debate whether this is a "major" rule change. But when you consider that this data is not readily available right now (at least to OSHA), the fact that amputations and eye loss will be recorded in the future is important. It could lead to improved safety in some dangerous workplaces that, right now, essentially have such injuries covered up.
