Update to MOSH Reporting Requirements.


Maryland has incorporated the federal standards for reporting of work-related injuries and deaths. Thus, as under federal OSHA, state law now requires reporting within eight hours of the death of an employee or 24 hours of the in-patient hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye by an employee, as a result of a work-related incident. Maryland law specifically qualifies that such “amputation” must involve “bone or cartilage loss.” These reports can be made by telephone to MOSH at 410-527-4447.
