Proper Recordkeeping and Reporting is an important part of worker safety. This critical paperwork includes both the Training Records for all current employees as well as any OSHA 300 Forms. OSHA 300 Forms are what provide details and documentation of the incidents which occurred at a work place. These records are public information and all workers have the right to access them to learn about the safety of their work environment.
Anytime OSHA pays a visit to your location, they will want to see the training records for all employees. These records are important because they detail the training each employee received and document that everyone has been properly trained to do the job they do, use the equipment required, and that they have been informed of all potential workplace hazards. These training records must be kept for a minimum of three years.
The OSHA 300 Forms
OSHA 300 Forms are what one fills out after an accident or injury. They provide critical information to OSHA, the Employer and the Employee on what happened and how it occurred. They also discuss how to prevent the same accident in the future. OSHA 300 Forms are broken down into three parts.
The Final Rule
The Final Rule came about on January 1st of 2017. It issued an adjustment to how OSHA Forms are filled out, and how to submit electronic copies moving forward. By submitting electronic copies of OSHA Forms, more detailed records can be kept and utilized to further worker safety. The Final Rule also protects workers rights by prohibiting employers from discouraging their submission. All workers are allowed to submit a form, and all workers are allowed to review past 300 Forms.
