What is OSHA 300?
OSHA requires most workplaces with more than 10 employees to keep a
record of serious work-related injuries and
illnesses. 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
immediately after it
- OSHA 300 Log: log of work related injuries and illnesses 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
days spent away from
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.
