If a forklift accident occurred at your facility today, would you be required to report it?
Per its standard 29 CFR 1904, OSHA requires employers to maintain logs of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. In January 2015, changes were implemented that revised the list of industries exempt from recordkeeping regulations.
OSHA Events that must be reported include:
- All work-related fatalities within 8 hours. Fatalities that occur within 30 days of the work-related accident would be applicable.
- All work-related inpatient hospitalizations, all amputations and all losses of an eye within 24 hours.
