Employers with more than 10 workers are required to track workplace injuries and illnesses

As part of the OSHA reporting regulations, employers with more than 10 workers are required to track workplace injuries and illnesses, then send a summary of that information to OSHA each year.

Using Form 300 - Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses - for each work site, employers must record injuries/illnesses that result in death, loss of consciousness, days away from work, restricted work activity or job transfer, and medical treatment beyond first aid.

In addition, all work-related cases of cancer, chronic irreversible disease, broken bones, or punctured eardrum must be recorded.

Form 300A must be posted where company notices are usually displayed for workers to read from February 1, 2018 through April 30, 2018.

Employers who do not post this information can be issued a citation by OSHA and fined a maximum of $12,934 per violation.
