    compactor during the loading, operation, or unloading of the baler 
    or compactor; and

    ``(iv) The reports described in clause (i) shall be submitted to 
the Secretary promptly, but not later than 10 days after the date on 
which an incident relating to an injury or death occurred.
    ``(v) The Secretary may not rely solely on the reports described in 
clause (i) as the basis for making a determination that any of the 
employers described in clause (i) has violated a provision of section 
12 relating to oppressive child labor or a regulation or order issued 
pursuant to section 12. The Secretary shall, prior to making such a 
determination, conduct an investigation and inspection in accordance
