OSHA Recordkeeping

Cal-OSHA Recordkeeping, T8 CCR ยง14300.7, requires employers to record work-related fatalities, injuries and illnesses. Recording a work-related injury, illness or fatality does not mean that the employer or the employee was at fault.

Work-related injuries and illnesses that fall into the categories listed below are recorded in the OSHA Form 300 each calendar year. The form is then posted in conspicuous areas at all work sites.

  • Death,
  • Loss of consciousness,
  • Days away from work,
  • Restricted work activity or job transfer, or
  • Medical treatment beyond first aid

The OSHA 300 Log is maintained by EH&S. Contact injuryprevention@usc.edu if your building or work area does not have an OSHA 300 log.
