Q & A – What rules does OSHA have for recordkeeping?

Q: What rules does OSHA have for recordkeeping?

A: Employers with 11 or more workers must prepare and maintain records of occupational fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. There are additional injury and illness recordkeeping and reporting requirements that all employers must follow regardless of the number of workers employed. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces the federal occupational injury and illness recordkeeping, medical recordkeeping, and injury reporting rules for private sector workplaces in most states.  Other states, such as California, have their own state OSHA programs with similar requirements.
