Occupational Injury and Illness Recording and Reporting Requirements
Document Number: 2010-2010
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-01-29
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
OSHA is proposing to revise its Occupational Injury and Illness Recording and Reporting (Recordkeeping) regulation to restore a column to the OSHA 300 Log that employers would use to record work- related musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). The 2001 Recordkeeping final regulation included an MSD column, but the requirement was deleted before the regulation became effective. This proposed rule would require employers to place a check mark in the MSD column, instead of the column they currently mark, if a case is an MSD that meets the Recordkeeping regulation's general recording requirements.
