OSHA Recordkeeping Training for Managers


If you are manager or supervisor, keeping proper records of accidents and other events happening within your organization is just part of the job. That includes your OSHA logs and other records. This OSHA recordkeeping Training Kit for Managers is designed to help you stay within OSHA regulation (29 CFR Part 1904), so your company is fully compliant with proper protocol. Teach your managers and supervisors the ins and outs of the OSHA 300 log and other record keeping and log requirements.

This OSHA Records Training Course for Managers and Supervisors Includes the Following Key Concepts:

  • What do the OSHA record requirements of Part 1904 require for your business?
  • Why is OSHA record keeping important for your business?  (Aside from the OSHA requirements, you can also understand injury patterns and take action to reduce or eliminate those injuries. Without proper records, your injury data won’t be accurate or actionable)
  • What are some common misconceptions when it comes to OSHA record keeping?  (Some feel that if they record an injury on their OSHA log, that somehow an OSHA rule was violated which is not true. Or, some feel that they can blame the employees on the OSHA 300 log as not being safe at work – while that might be true, that is not the purpose of the OSHA log. Accidents can and will happen regardless of how “safe” your employees work)
  • How can your managers and supervisors understand which OSHA record keeping requirements apply to your business? (If you are looking for the employee training on OSHA record keeping we have that too)
  • What are some examples of when an employer might be partially exempt from the OSHA records requirements?  (If your company has 10 or few employees, if your industry is one that is defined as “low hazard” including insurance, real estate or retail businesses, and others)

OSHA Recordkeeping for Managers Training Additional Topics Covered:

  • What does being partially exempt actually mean when it comes to keeping OSHA records and logs? (It means your business is not required to keep injury and illness records unless you are specifically asked to in writing by OSHA, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, or by your State Agency)
  • What is the North American Industrial Classification System or NAICS, and how does your industry code affect your need to maintain OSHA logs and records?
  • When required to keep OSHA records and logs, what must your company keep records on? (You must record your work related injuries and illnesses, and you must make those records available to OSHA and your employees)
  • How does Part 1904 define an “injury” or an “illness?” (Any incident that only requires first aid, does NOT require tracking on the logs or records. However, if an employee misses time from work, has work restrictions given by a doctor, or is hospitalized, those are times when logging the injury in the OSHA records is required)

Teaching Managers How to Fill out Logs and How to Classify OSHA Injuries and Reportables:

  • What is a “recordable” injury that requires record keeping?
  • Are there times when a non-work related injury needs to be logged?
  • Should voluntary participation in company related recreational activities be logged if an injury occurred? (No)
  • Should an employee sickness stem from company provided food, should that be logged? (Yes)
  • Should an employee with a cold or the flu be logged on the OSHA logs? (No)
  • How managers and supervisors should fill out the OSHA Form 300 and the Form 301
  • When does your business need to complete the Form 300A and what needs to be included?
  • What are the six categories of injuries found on the OSHA Form 300A? (Injuries, Respiratory Illnesses, Poisonings, Skin Disorders, Hearing Loss, and finally, “All Other Illnesses.”)

OSHA Log Manager Training Additional Topics Discussed:

  • When does OSHA require a company to submit their Form 300A electronically? (When the business has more than 250 or employees, or more than 20 employees in a high hazard industry)
  • When does the Form 300A needs to be submitted to OSHA? (By March 2nd of the following year that you are reporting on)
  • What are the posting requirements for Form 300A?  How long will it need to be posted and where?
  • What are the OSHA reporting requirements for an employee who dies on the job?  (Must be reported within 8 hours)
  • What are the special OSHA reporting requirements for an employee who sustains an amputation, an enucleation (loses an eye), or is admitted as a hospital in-patient? (Must be reported within 24 hours of occurrence)
  • and much more….
