Document Field Service and Other Injuries
We highly recommend that your contracting business uses this form even if your company does not have to report injuries. It is a good idea to document when service technicians, installation technicians, and other field or office workers get injured while at work.
What is the OSHA Form 301?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Form 301, “Injury and Illness Incident Report,” is used by employers to keep a record of a single injury, illness, or death in a workplace.
OSHA considers injuries and illnesses to be recordable if they are serious, directly related to an employee’s work, and happen while the worker is doing their job. Recordable injuries include:
- Injuries or illnesses that cause unconsciousness, days off from work, restricted work, or job transfers
- Diagnosed cancer, irreversible chronic conditions, broken teeth or bones, and punctured eardrums
- Injuries requiring professional care
Minor injuries that only require first aid, like a bandage or ice pack, don’t have to be recorded. Also, different rules apply for certain conditions including tuberculosis and hearing loss. Visit the OSHA website for more details about the regulations for recordable injuries and illnesses.
