Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. (Certain low-risk industries are exempted.)
This information helps employers, workers and OSHA evaluate the safety of a workplace, understand industry hazards, and implement worker protections to reduce and eliminate hazards –preventing future workplace injuries and illnesses.
The records must be maintained at the worksite for at least five years. Each February through April, employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year. Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives.
This form can be accessed through UT ONE DRIVE by accessing this link: OSHA 300A
Copies of the OSHA Form 300A can be requested through Campus Safety (Scampb62@uthsc.edu) , Research Safety (email@example.com), or UT System Office of Risk Management.
