The Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA 300 Log) is used to classify work-related injuries and illnesses and to note the extent and severity of each case. When an incident occurs, use the OSHA 300 Log to record specific details about what happened and how it happened.
The Summary — a separate form (OSHA Form 300A) — shows the totals for the year in each category. At the end of the year, post the Summary or an equivalent form in a visible location so that your employees are aware of the injuries and illnesses occurring in their workplace. (Posting required from Feb. 1 to April 30.)
Employers must keep a Log for each establishment or site. If you have more than one establishment, you must keep a separate OSHA 300 Log and Summary for each physical location that is expected to be in operation for one year or longer.
