  • The OSHA Standard for Reporting and Recording Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, 29 C.F.R. ยง 1904, requires that certain employers track work-related injuries and illnesses of their employees throughout the year, post the summaries of those injuries at the end of the year, maintain records for five years and report to OSHA work-related deaths and hospitalizations of three or more employees. This Alert will identify the employers who must comply with the standard and provide a simplified guide for employers to use in conjunction with the standard in order to understand the requirements. The posting requirements were addressed in a January 2012 Alert, OSHA Alert - February 1 Deadline for OSHA 300-A.
