The OSHA FORM 300 LOG OF INJURIES AND ILLNESSES:
The OSHA law requires most employers with 10 or more full-time employees to keep ayearly log of all work-related injuries and illnesses. * This is the OSHA Log of Injuries and Illnesses, or the OSHA Form 300.
What is the OSHA Form 300?
The OSHA Form 300 is a form for employers to record all reportable injuries and illnesses that occur in the workplace, where and when they occur, the nature of the case, the name and job title of the employee injured or made sick, and the number of days away from work or on restricted or light duty, if any.
What Kinds of Injuries or Illnesses Should Be Reported On The Form?
Employers must record all new cases of work-related fatalities, injuries, and illnesses if they involve: death, days away from work, restricted work or transfer to another job, medical treatment beyond first aid, loss of consciousness, or a significant injury or illness diagnosed by a physician or other licensed health care professional.
Each recordable injury or illness case must be recorded on the OSHA 300 Log and the Form 301 Incident Report within seven calendar days after the employer receives notice that the injury or illness occurred.
What Other Forms Are Used to Record Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses?
Other forms used are the OSHA 301 and 300-A - these are in addition to the OSHA Form 300 which is the actual log.
Form 300-A must be completed and certified by a company executive as correct and complete and posted in the workplace where notices to workers
are usually posted. It must be posted for three months, from February 1 until April 30.
The OSHA form 301 and 300-A must be made available to workers if they ask to see a copy at any time.
