I have completed all our OSHA annual Reports (300, 300A, and 301) and am ready to submit to OSHA. I was a little confused on what reports they want us to send. On average we have anywhere from 600-900 employees on staff, where a bulk of them work in the warehouse distribution center. I wasn't sure due to the new ruling if we needed to send all three reports or just the OSHA 300A report.
OSHA does not prescribe who has the right-of-way between pedestrians and forklifts in its rule for forklifts at 29 CFR 1910.178, but the agency has published guidelines and best practices.
At our company we have a combination of full time employees and temp employees that work for an agency to staff our business.

It is up to you the employer to determine the amount of time needed to adequately train workers to recognize the specific hazards they will encounter and how to avoid injury and illness.
White Papers:
OSHA's most recent regulatory agenda includes two items with the potential to change employers' lockout/tagout compliance obligations: a request for information about the strengths and limitations of computer-based controls and a Standards Improvement Project rulemaking that could broaden the scope of the standard by removing a single word.
