Oregon OSHA

Topic index



Most of Oregon OSHA's recordkeeping requirements fall into the following categories:

Access to exposure and medical records:
​If you keep or have access to your employee's exposure and medical records, you must ensure that they also have access to them.
Employee training:
Many Oregon OSHA rules require that you document the training you give your employees.
Equipment maintenance and testing:
It's a good idea to keep records of any equipment that needs regular service or maintenance. It's also a requirement for some of our rules.
Exposure monitoring:
Exposure monitoring tests the air to determine the concentration of contaminants in your workplace. Records are usually required to show you are in compliance.
Fit testing:
Fit testing ensures that a respirator will fit the person who wears it. Records are required for fit test results.
Hazard communication:
If your workplace has hazardous chemicals, your recordkeeping must ensure that your employees know about the chemicals and know how to protect themselves.
Injury reporting:
Required injury reporting forms for many employers include the OSHA 300 Log and 300A Summary and DCBS form 801. Hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers must also keep a log of health care assaults.
Medical evaluations and surveillance:
Keep records of medical evaluations and medical surveillance for employees who wear respirators and employees who are exposed to certain hazardous substances.
Workplace inspections:
Some Oregon OSHA rules require a written and dated inspection report signed by the employee who did the inspection.
