Professional Development Hours (PDHs)  
Participation in NAPA webinars may earn you Professional Development Hours (PDHs). PDHs are educational units used to fulfill continuing education requirements for licensure or certification. In most cases, 1 hour of participation in a webinar equals 1 PDH. Some states and certifying bodies require pre-approval of professional development hours and documentation requirements also vary, so be sure to check with your appropriate agency. You are responsible for maintaining the documentation for your PDHs. You can request a certificate of completion after you attend any of the webinars to keep for your records.

Electronic Injury Reporting for Asphalt Plants and Road Construction Activities
Date: Thursday, October 26, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Manesh Rath, Attorney, Keller and Heckman LLP

Earlier in 2017, OSHA updated its Workplace Injury and Illness Rule to include an electronic reporting provision. The rule requires certain industries to electronically report injuries and illnesses from the preceding year, by Dec 1, 2017, and sets forth criteria that obligate certain establishments with more than 20 employees to electronically report. OSHA loosely defines “establishment” as an individual facility. Because the asphalt pavement road construction industry operates under varying industrial NAICS codes, understanding whether a company’s production and paving operations are required to report is not necessarily straight-forward. Manesh Rath, an expert attorney with the law firm of Keller and Heckman, will help attendees understand their reporting obligations associated with the electronic injury reporting rule.
