This topic covers OSHA’s requirements for injury and illness recordkeeping (i.e., OSHA form 300 and state equivalents), reporting fatalities and multiple injuries that require hospitalization, and employee exposure and medical records.
Employers with more than 10 employees must keep records of work-related injuries and illnesses; however, certain low-hazard industries are exempt. All employers, regardless of size or classification, are required to report work-related fatalities and multiple hospitalizations (involving 3 or more employees) to OSHA within 8 hours of the incident.
