OSHA 300 Form

The OSHA 300 Form is an annual log of injuries, illnesses, and deaths for an organization, and is managed by iScout's OSHA Case Management software.

What is the OSHA 300 Form?

An OSHA 300 Form is an annual log of recordable, work-related, injuries and illnesses for an organization.

The most common example of an OSHA 300 Form is the sample document available on OSHA's website. This document includes the form 300, form 300a, and form 301 - all of which must be tracked per establishment at an organization.

  • OSHA Form 300 - a detailed listing of recordable of incidents for the organization
  • OSHA Form 300a - a summary of form 300 that must be posted for employees Feb 1 - Apr 30
  • OSHA Form 301 - the details of a specific recordable incident

These OSHA forms must be kept for at least 5 years.

For larger organizations with multiple locations, both the OSHA Form 300 and the OSHA Form 300a must be tracked per "establishment". OSHA defines an establishment as "An establishment is a single physical location where business is conducted or where services or industrial operations are performed..."

  • loss of consciousness
  • missed days
  • restricted work
  • job transfer
  • medical treatment beyond first aid
  • fractured or cracked bones or teeth
  • punctured eardrums
  • work-related diagnosis of cancer or chronic irreversible diseases
  • needlesticks and sharps injuries
  • medical removal
  • hearing loss
  • tuberculosis

See the OSHA website for details.

Am I required to track OSHA 300 logs?

In general, an organization must keep an OSHA 300 Form if:

  • they've had 11 or more employees this year or last
  • or a work-related fatality, in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye has occurred
  • or you were asked to keep logs by a state or federal agency (such as OSHA or BLS)

Organizations with 11+ employees may be exempt if they work in a low-risk industry like retail, finance, etc. (learn more)

Contact your nearest OSHA office to determine if an OSHA 300 Form is required for your organization.

Do I need to submit my OSHA 300 Form to OSHA?

Most organizations do not need to submit their logs to OSHA, but the logs must be kept on file for 5 years.

Organizations only need to regularly submit their logs if:

  • you have 250 or more employees this year or last
  • or you have 20-249 employees and your industry is construction, manufacturing, transportation, etc (see all)
  • or a work-related fatality, in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye occurred
  • or you were asked to keep logs by a state or federal agency (such as OSHA or BLS)

Typically the logs must be submitted electronically by March 1st of the following year.

Additionally organizations must report fatalities within 8 hours and any amputation, loss of an eye, or hospitalization within 24 hours.

How do I fill out the OSHA 300 Form?

iScout's OSHA Case Management software is the easiest way to track and manage OSHA Forms 300, 300a, and 301 over time.

When a recordable incident occurs, OSHA requires three forms to be filled out - OSHA 300, OSHA 300a, and OSHA 301. Each of these forms contains redundant information which can make it difficult to track and keep in sync.

With iScout you fill out a single form per incident and all three OSHA forms are automatically updated with the latest data. At the end of the year, iScout's OSHA Case Manager will warn you if any fields are incomplete. Historical data is maintained automatically so you'll have no issue keeping the data for OSHA's requirement of 5 years.
