Comply With OSHA Recordkeeping, Posting and Reporting Requirements

Key Points

  • A major component of OSHA compliance is following applicable recordkeeping, reporting, and posting requirements.
  • OSHA requires certain record logs to be kept by employers with more than 10 employees in order to be able to examine what injuries are occurring most frequently.
  • OSHA requires employers to post the OSHA Poster, as well as several other documents, in a high traffic area where most employees are likely to see it.
  • Employers are required to report to OSHA, within eight hours, any employee death or catastrophe, which is defined as any situation that requires hospitalization for three or more employees.
