Workplace mishaps: Are you keeping your records straight?

How should you report and record accidents?

There are a number of ways to report and record all accidents that occur in the workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration can be reached through a toll free phone number: 1-800-321-6742. This number can be called and any accidents can be reported via telephone. Reports can also be made to the nearest, local, OSHA representative office. Finally, the OSHA website has online forms that can be used to record and report any workplace accidents.

There are a few time limits within which accidents must be reported. Any accidents that result in a fatality must be reported within 30 days of the when the accident occurred. However, when a fatality occurs it must be reported within 8 hours, but only if it is due to a work-related accident. Additionally, in-patient hospitalization, amputations, and accidents that result in the loss of an eye must be reported within 24 hours of the accident. However, these 3 things only have to be reported if they occur within 24 hours of the accident, and as a result of the accident. It may also be beneficial to report accidents to the workforce. Signage that tracks ‘accident free’ periods is a great way to notify your workforce of occurrences and increase awareness of workplace accidents.
