OSHA Recordkeeping

OSHA Recordkeeping Services

There are many rules dictating proper OSHA recordkeeping when occupational injury and illness occur, and Fletcher Safety Consulting is available to ensure you are keeping your records accurately.

In order for employers, workers, and union representatives to get a clear picture of the health hazards and their frequency in a workplace, all occupational injuries and illnesses must be reported in accordance with the OSHA recordkeeping requirements. Any new cases of work-related fatalities or injuries must be reported as well as all illnesses that involve death, days away from work, restricted work or transfer to another job, loss of consciousness, or medical treatment beyond first aid.

To meet the OSHA recordkeeping requirements, each incident must be properly reported in the OSHA 300 Log and the OSHA 301 Injury and Illness Incident Report. Employers, employees, and union representatives may use these records to determine if workers are consistently getting injured or made ill in the workplace so that appropriate action can be taken to alleviate these issues.

Reviewing Services for your OSHA Recordkeeping Practices

Fletcher Safety Consulting can review your current OSHA recordkeeping practices and records on file in order to give you peace of mind that you’re in line with the regulations. We can review your OSHA 300 logs and 300a reports, as well as help fill out the first reports of an occupational injury or illness. We commonly set up a program with our clients that involves a set number of paid hours for Q&A. This allows us to answer any questions for you that may arise over the course of the year without you having to worry about paying for each question or to clarify answers. We are also able to help you calculate incident rates and asses action that needs to be taken to protect your company from OSHA fines and penalties.

OSHA Recordkeeping Training

If your company has an individual representative or a group of employees that they would like to fully understand the ins and outs of OSHA recordkeeping, Fletcher Safety Consulting’s certified professionals are able to provide the appropriate training.

In our training sessions, attendees will learn how to evaluate an incident and determine whether it should be recorded or not. They will also learn how to properly complete the OSHA 300 Log with incidents and their classifications, calculate days away from work, and understand posting requirements. OSHA recordkeeping regulations also involve health evaluations, product information, and how long to archive safety documentation. Fletcher Safety Consulting will provide all of this information and more during training to ensure OSHA recordkeeping regulations will be followed and to avoid any OSHA violations.
