Record Keeping Requirements

  • Some minor injuries requiring first aid only do not need to be recorded.

NOTE: Ensure any reportable incidents & hours, which were not administered by AdvanStaff during the reporting period are included in your 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 through April, employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year.
  • Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives.

Electronic Submission of Records

  • Starting in 2017, many employers will be required to electronically submit the summary of injuries and illnesses to OSHA.
