OSHA toughens injury reporting requirements

On September 28, 2014 Business Insurance reported “that employers are not sure that new safety rules from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will help eliminate workplace fatalities and injuries, but they are sure that “they will spend more time and money on compliance.” Requirements that go into effect on Jan. 1, 2015 will require companies to report work-related injuries within 24 hours.”

Report: Superstorm Sandy Not “The Big One”; East Coast Must Plan for $100 Billion Storms

On October 29, 2014 The International Code Coucil reported that “nearly two years ago, Superstorm Sandy slammed into the U.S. East Coast with a ferocity that left more than 100 people dead and some 650,000 homes destroyed, and knocked out power to more than 8 million, weaving a path of destruction estimated to cost more than $65 billion. But as damaging as it was, Sandy was far from the worst that nature can deliver, according to a new report from insurance giant Swiss Re which warns that the U.S. needs to prepare itself for storms that can cause $100 billion in damage or more—because they’ve happened here before”.

Yarmus Engineering, P.C. continues to work with land owners, property managers, and contractors in rebuilding, repairing, improving, and enhancing their properties and structures against such storm-related damage.  Please contact our office if we can be of assistance to you or your clients regarding such matters.
