Injury and Illness Records (OSHA 300)
National Summary

This topic covers OSHA’s requirements for injury and illness recordkeeping (i.e., OSHA form 300 and state equivalents); reporting fatalities, inpatient hospitalizations, amputations, and losses of an eye; 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, including those exempt from standard recordkeeping or reporting requirements under workplace safety and health rules, must report any fatality, inpatient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye to OSHA.

For related resources and training materials, refer to the following topics:

  • Accidents for information on accident causes, investigation, and prevention
  • Recordkeeping—General for information on other OSHA recordkeeping requirements
  • Safety Plans for information on injury and illness prevention programs, including I2P2
