What is an OSHA Recordable?

An OSHA recordable injury is an occupational injury or illness that requires medical treatment more than simple first aid and must be reported.


Any medical treatment that goes beyond first aid meets the general recording criteria and is thus recordable.


OSHA Recordable Criteria:  (follow the possible injuries and illnesses or first aid "treatments")...




recording vs. Reporting
OSHA makes a clear distinction between events that should be recorded versus those that require an immediate report to OSHA. A recordable accident must be listed in the company's safety files, which should be kept on-site unless they are requested by OSHA. A reportable accident must be reported to OSHA in-person or by phone (at 1-800-321-OSHA) within eight hours of occurrence. Reportable accidents include any worker fatality or the in-patient hospitalization of three or more employees within an eight-hour period.
