I am often asked when a work-related injury needs to be recorded on an employer’s 300 log under OSHA regulations, and often find that the reporting requirement for serious injuries is sometimes misunderstood or completely missed. Remember that for serious injuries, an employer must report to OSHA, not just record the injury in its log.
Reporting can be done by phone or online and be prepared for an OSHA inspection when the report is made. Not sure what to do to be prepared for an OSHA inspection? I will address that in our next OSHA insight.
