What is OSHA Form 300?
OSHA Form 300 is a tool used by companies with more than 10 employees to keep a
record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. It is accomplished in compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements.
There are three key OSHA forms that must be completed in the event of a recordable injury or illness:
- OSHA Form 301: a detailed injury and illness report recording full details of the incident immediately after it occurred
- OSHA 300 Log: log of work-related injuries and illnesses that is used to classify the extent and severity of each case and includes estimated time away from work
- OSHA 300A: annual summary report detailing the number of cases, injuries, and total days spent away from work
Detailed injury records help employers, workers, and OSHA evaluate the safety of a workplace, understand key hazards, and prevent incidents from recurring. OSHA requires all work-related injuries and illnesses to be recorded within 7 calendar days of an employer learning about the incident. All incident injury reports need to be made available to employees and all records must be maintained at the worksite for at least 5 years.
