A Chief Charles Jeffress had hoped to publish its final recordkeeping rule by now, so that the new forms would be in place in January 2000. That didn't happen, however. He explained the implementation delay to January 2001 by saying: "It's critical to the success of the new system for people to have the training and support they need to help them learn the differences(in the new plan). OSHA has promised to provide that. (...assistance to...) employers and state OSHA programs". The new rule will offer clearer definitions of work-relatedness, a better explanation of what constitutes light duty and a much improved and simpler recordkeeping form. Jeffress encouraged trade and professional organizations to train their members and prospective members on recordkeeping so they can hit the ground running on the procedures associated with the new rule.
