How Many Employees Are Required Before You Need to Keep a Record of Serious Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses?

Do you know your company’s OSHA recordkeeping obligations?

OSHA requires construction businesses (among others) to complete and regularly update paperwork related to workplace safety.

Perhaps the best known of these is the OSHA 300 Log, which records the details of injuries and illnesses that occur at your workplace. Minor injuries requiring only first aid don’t need to be recorded on the OSHA 300 Log.

Most employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. Certain low-risk industries are exempt from this requirement.

Posting Records

Each February 1st through April 30th, employers must post OSHA’s Form 300A which presents a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year.

Records must be kept at the workplace for at least 5 years. 

Electronic Reporting

ALL Minnesota employers with 20 or more employees are required to electronically submit their OSHA Form 300A from the previous calendar year.

March 2, 2023, is the deadline for submitting your 2022 data.
