When an employee is hurt on the job, filling out forms probably isn’t the first thing on your mind.
But keeping a record of what happened and why is important so that you can correct hazards and prevent future injuries.
And in many cases, it’s the law.
What you need to know
If your business has 11 or more employees, you generally are required to keep a log of work-related injuries and illnesses.
Oregon OSHA requires employers to post the OSHA 300A summary no later than February 1, and keep it posted through April 30.
Our free online training covers the basics, including:
- Who needs to report—and who doesn’t
- What kinds of injuries to include
- Which forms to use
- How long to keep the information
