OSHA RECORDKEEPING TIPS
29 CFR 1904
The time is now to begin completing the OSHA recordkeeping that is required to be posted, and later e-filed with OSHA in the coming months.
- The OSHA Form 300 is the Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses that is maintained on an annual basis. The log must be updated with 7 days of a “recordable” employee injury. Annual OSHA logs must be kept on file at the facility for five years.
- The OSHA Form 300A is the Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. This document needs to be posted at the facility (in a place where employees can easily see it) annually from February 1st until April 30th.
The OSHA Form 301 is the Injury and Illness Incident Report, and can be substituted with company incident reports, medical provider notes, and related injury claim information.
