Recordkeeping Requirements

OSHA generally requires that employers subject to the OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping rule fill out three forms. These forms consist of:

  • The Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300);
  • The Injury and Illness Incident Report (OSHA Form 301); and
  • The Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300A)

OSHA Form 300 is a form for employers to use to record information pertaining to specific, work-related injuries or illnesses. On this form, employers must record when and where the injury or illness occurred, 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.

OSHA Form 301 is used by employers to provide, with respect to each case recorded on OSHA Form 300, additional information about the employee and any health care he or she receives. OSHA Form 301 also requires employers to provide detailed information about the case, including the activity leading up to the incident, how the incident happened, and the specific nature of the injury or illness.

OSHA Form 300A is an end of the year form that summarizes the number of cases recorded on OSHA Form 300, the total number of days away from work and number of days of job transfer or restriction recorded on OSHA Form 300, and the total number of injuries, skin disorders, respiratory conditions poisonings, hearing losses, and all other illnesses recorded on OSHA Form 300.
