Under the OSHA Recordkeeping Regulation, “covered employers” are required to maintain records of serious occupational injuries and illnesses, as well as publicly post records by using the OSHA 300 and 300A Log. Additional accident information is on the OSHA 301 form. This information is to be used by employers to evaluate safety in the workplace. In addition, if an OSHA inspector shows up at your facility, they will ask for the current and past logs. Your response and numbers on the logs will be used to determine which inspection protocol the inspector will follow.
