OSHA injury, illness recordkeeping

12/29/2010


Injury and illness recordkeeping has always been an important part of OSHA's workplace safety efforts. Accurate counting of workplace injuries and illnesses is essential to identify and address safety and health hazards and to ensure that workers receive appropriate medical treatment.

And with the renewed Congressional and Agency attention on workplace injuries and illness, the accuracy of your records is more important than ever. During an OSHA inspection, the Compliance Officer will usually ask to look at the last three year's worth of OSHA 300 Logs.

It's also time to complete and post OSHA's Form 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses even if there were no work-related injuries or illnesses during the year.

Given that your program may come under intense OSHA scrutiny in the near future, how confident are you that your records would pass the test?
