OSHA Recordkeeping Requirements

Each year, millions of workers get hurt on the job. In order to help prevent work-related injuries and illnesses, OSHA has for decades required employers to keep track of these incidents by recording them in what is often called an OSHA log.  OSHA is now requiring employers to also electronically submit this injury data directly to OSHA for its review.  For 2019 data, employers have until March 2, 2020 to comply.  Read more about this directly from OSHA here

  • Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. (Certain low-risk industries are exempted.) Minor injuries requiring first aid only do not need to be recorded.
  • Establishments with 20 or more employees from selected industries(examples listed below) and all establishments covered by the record keeping rule with 250 or more employees must comply.  
  • OSHA 300A data must be electronically submitted to OSHA by March 2 for years moving forward.
  • Employers must upload their data via a CSV file or manually enter data for each of their covered establishments.
  • Violations for materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements can be punished by a fine or by imprisonment of not more than five(5) years, or both.
  • Failure to comply with these new OSHA regulations could result in a OSHA Penalties $13,260 fine and trigger a more detailed OSHA recordkeeping audit
