Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The regulations of the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation-Office of Occupational Safety and Health, relating to Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, designated as Regulation Document Number 5013, and submitted to the General Assembly pursuant to the provisions of Article 1, Chapter 23, Title 1 of the 1976 Code, are approved.

The South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation-Division of Occupational Safety and Health (SC OSHA) proposes to amend sections of Chapter 71, Article 1, Subarticle 3, Occupational Injury and Illness Recording and Reporting Regulation.
Specifically, the Department proposes to amend Section 71-310 to clarify that employers must comply with the provisions of 71-305 when making a determination as to whether a worker's hearing loss is work-related. The Department also intends to add a period after the word designee in R.71-341(a)(3) and to add R.71-341(a)(4) regarding the electronic submission of the Employer Identification Number (EIN) used by the establishment which was inadvertently omitted from a prior update to this section.
