SETTING UP CASE MANAGEMENT
NOTE: To edit and access this module, you must have the OSHA Case Management permission granted to you.

An OSHA establishment is a single physical location where business is conducted or where services or industrial operations are performed. Learn more about OSHA’s definition of Establishments here.
You can create Establishments 2 different ways, from a List or Manually.
Import from a list…
This allows you to import from pre-existing lists in your KPA Flex account, like Companies, Lines of Business, Locations, or other Datalists.
You can create new Establishments manually by entering all required information.
Whether you create an Establishment from a List or Manually, there are certain pieces of information that are required.
If any of this information is missing, an error message will appear, listing the missing data and giving the option to make edits.
Once all Establishments are entered, you’ll see them listed here. They can be Edited, Deleted, downloaded into an Excel file, and new Establishments added. This will also indicate that all required fields are complete with the green check mark.
ADDING EMPLOYEE HOURS
In order for KPA Flex to calculate safety related metrics of TRIR (Total Recordable Incident Rate) and DART (Days Away, Restricted or Transferred), Employee Hours need to be recorded.
You can add Employee Hours 2 different ways, from a Spreadsheet or Manually.
To add hours using a Spreadsheet, click the link to load a bunch of hours.
To add hours Manually, click +ADD HOURS next to each month.
Click Save Changes to update hours. These can always be edited in the future.
Once Establishments have been created and Hours have been added, the Dashboard will give you visibility to your Incident History and Statistics.
ADDING A NEW INCIDENT CASE
To begin a new incident report, click + NEW CASE on the Dashboard page to begin filling out the OSHA Recordable Incident form.
This form will only be available to fill out within the OSHA Case Management module. The data that is collected in this form is used to calculate TRIR, DART and Severity metrics.
The form is created to capture all required information to satisfy the OSHA Form 301 report, including the Outcome of the case.
In Outcome, if Days Away From Work or Job Transfer or Restriction are selected, choose how you want to keep track of those days, Calculated or Manual.
Once all available information has been filled out, click Submit to enter the form and create a new case.
