Recordkeeping and reporting of workplace injuries and illnesses is required by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), specifically in their 29CFR 1904 recordkeeping regulations. In general, OSHA requires that employers under their jurisdiction, with more than 10 employees during the calendar year, to keep records of workplace injuries and illnesses. OSHA requires all employers under their jurisdiction to report certain workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses to OSHA, regardless if the employer is exempt from keeping records. In 2017 OSHA finalized their Improved Tracking Rule to include provisions for electronic data submissions, anti-retaliation protections, and more.
