OSHA offers free safety resources that will help owners and managers review the safety program requirements for their workplaces.
Employers are required to evaluate their workplaces and keep their workplace free from identifiable and recognized hazards and dangerous conditions to protect all workers’ safety and overall health. All businesses are required to comply with the OSHA Standards. Which sections apply to your business depends on the business classification, work practices and number of employees.
OSHA requires that all employers comply with applicable OSHA standards unless they are specifically exempted. Businesses with more than ten (10) employees must maintain OSHA injury and illness records unless OSHA classifies the business as partially exempt.
If you have few than 10 employees during the year, unless OSHA or the Bureau of Labor Statistics classifies your business in a category that requires you to do so, you do not need to keep the OSHA 300 log records of injuries and illnesses.
