July 31, 2009, Newsletter Issue #178: OSHA Record Keeping

Tip of the Week

The Occupational Safety and Health Act makes it mandatory for all employers to enter a record of work-related injuries or sickness. It is a good idea to download the required forms from the OSHA Web site.

The forms used, OSHA Form 300: “Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses,” are quite comprehensive and provides areas for the employer to describe the illness or injury each employee received. A summary of form 300 is submitted to the OSHA at the end of the year.

Record keeping was implemented by the OSHA as a way in which to keep track of various accidents or illnesses occurring in a particular workplace. Data from this can be used to highlight company with an unsafe track record, or a manufacturing industry with a common injury. Using this information, further regulations or inspections can be implemented to correct them.
