OSHA requires that businesses maintain a running account of injuries and illnesses that occur in the workplace. The logs must be completely and accurately filled in and completed. At the end of the year, these figures must be reported to OSHA or other report collection agencies to determine if the rate of injuries and illnesses falls within the norm for that industry sector.
Over reporting injuries and illnesses or under-reporting such numbers can result in problems, both internally in a company, as well as with the regulatory agency. Accurate reporting is imperative and is a good tool to use in determining problem areas in the company’s business operation.
