Occupational Safety and Employer Reporting

On May 8, 2017, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed legislation (A.B. 54) requiring any accident or motor vehicle crash occurring in the course of employment that results in the inpatient hospitalization of one or more employees, the amputation of a part of an employee’s body, or an employee’s loss of an eye must be verbally reported by the employer to the nearest office of the Nevada Division of Industrial Relations within 24 hours after the accident or crash is reported to any of the employer’s agents or employees.

The law is effective October 1, 2017.
