The OSHA recordkeeping requirements have been around for decades. Employers of various sizes in a wide range of industries are required to complete the records; many must also notify OSHA of serious events and submit their injury and illness data electronically to OSHA each year. Fines and penalties for providing inaccurate information can be substantial, as can the impact on company brand from the potential negative publicity. An ongoing challenge is how best to comply with the requirements, which sometimes can be difficult to understand.
