What Employers Need to Know About OSHA Injury/Illness Record Mandates
At the start of an OSHA inspection, the agency will likely ask to review the employer’s injury and illness records. Barring an applicable exemption, OSHA regulations require that these records include (1) a log of work-related injuries and illnesses (OSHA Form 300), (2) an incident report for each injury and illness (OSHA Form 301), and (3) an Annual Summary of work-related injuries and illnesses (OSHA Form 300A). 29 C.F.R. 657(c)(2).
