DOL changes up its online enforcement database for easier, more open access

Today's post comes from G.Neil's HR News Weekly:

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently unveiled enhancements to its online enforcement database … all designed to improve public access and increase awareness of the department's enforcement activities.

Among the new features are a U.S. map with markers summarizing OSHA inspection and violation data for specific companies, as well as the ability to view individual inspection records and a company's enforcement history. The updated site also allows users to perform keyword searches; filter data by year, violations or penalties; and export search results into downloadable formats.

"These improvements to our online enforcement database are part of our commitment to open, transparent enforcement," said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. "By making this information available and easy to use, we're helping to ensure a level playing field for employers who follow the law."
