The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, requires covered businesses to record all injuries and illnesses that occur at the workplace. A business with 10 or more employees are generally required to comply with the recordkeeping requirement. Utilizing the OSHA reporting formswill make it easier for you to satisfy your posting requirement when it's time for your business to post all the work related injuries and illnesses on Form 300A. OSHA requires that every employer maintain an OSHA 300 form – even if you had no serious accidents during the year.
The OSHA safety forms includes areas to log work-related accidents, their causes, contributing factors and any time lost from work. It also has areas for recording work-related illnesses. By using the Form 300, you are one step closer to fulfilling your recordkeeping requirement.
