NOTE: Worksite managers are responsible for adding any reportable incidents & hours that were not administered through/by AdvanStaff HR during the reporting period and that are not included in the log & summary.

If AdvanStaff HR supplied your form and items are missing, that means AdvanStaff HR is unaware of the occurrence. Please contact our offices immediately.

Maintaining and Posting Records

  • The records must be maintained at the worksite for at least five years. Each February – April, employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year.
  • Upon request, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives.

Electronic Submission of Records

  • AdvanStaff HR handles the record keeping and provides the postings if we are the assigned agent covering all aspects of the workers compensation program.
  • Any worksite employer not utilizing AdvanStaff HR Risk Services for workers compensation policy management is required to electronically submit the summary of injuries and illnesses to OSHA directly.
