New online training: Recording a work-related injury or illness

This brief on-demand course covers the basics of OSHA reporting, including what injuries to record and which forms to use.

posted January 30, 2016

When an employee is hurt or becomes ill on the job, filling out forms probably isn't the first thing on your mind.

But keeping a record of what happened and why is important. Good recordkeeping raises awareness of workplace hazards so they can be corrected. It also helps OSHA keep track of national trends.

And in many cases, it's the law.

What you need to know
SAIF has designed a brief online training that covers the basics of how to record a work-related injury or illness. You'll find it on the online trainings page in our Employer Guide. You'll learn:

  • Who needs to report-and who doesn't
  • What kinds of injuries to include
  • Which forms to use
  • How long to keep the information
  • How to report to SAIF

You'll also find links to other helpful resources, including OSHA's 300 and 300A forms, plus the 801 form for filing a claim with SAIF.

When to post
Oregon OSHA rules require employers to post the OSHA 300A summary from February 1 through April 30. Find out about exemptions and posting guidelines.
