If you have 10 or more employees at any time during a calendar year, the Department of Labor requires you to maintain an OSHA 300 Log. It is also one of the requirements of the Workplace Safety Credit Program.
Maintaining the log is not difficult. You can choose to maintain the OSHA 300 log by hand or on your computer, whichever makes you most comfortable.
A couple of things you might want to know:
According to OSHA:
“Cases listed on the Log of Work Related Injuries and Illnesses are not necessarily eligible for workers’ compensation or other insurance benefits.”
“Listing a case on the Log does not mean that the employer or worker was at fault or that an OSHA standard was violated.”
“Your employees have the right to review your injury and illness records.”
We have attached a link to both the fillable form along with the paper form and their instructions.
If you have questions on the requirements of the OSHA 300 Log or maintaining one, please don’t hesitate to call us at (561) 500-FLWC (3592).
