Workplace injuries and illnesses can occur at any time or place. While companies strive to prevent such events, they need to know how to handle them when they do occur. This includes knowing how to properly record them.
OSHA Form 300 is the first form to fill out in these cases; it is one of several forms that can be digitally filed and tracked via BasicSafe’s Incident Investigation and Reporting Module. Unless companies fall under the small employer or low-hazard industry exemptions, they will need to log work-related injuries and illnesses here as they occur throughout the year.
To help you avoid OSHA 300 recordkeeping mistakes, follow these tips on how to properly fill out the form.
