Do I need to keep an OSHA log?

Who is responsible for reporting on an OSHA log?
Employers are responsible for reporting certain types of incidents on an OSHA log. This includes work-related fatalities, inpatient hospitalizations of one or more employees, amputations, and loss of an eye. Employers must report these incidents to OSHA within a specific time frame, typically within 8 hours for fatalities and 24 hours for other types of incidents.
Do I need to report temporary employees’ injuries on my OSHA log?

Yes, employers are responsible for reporting injuries and illnesses of all employees, including temporary employees, on their OSHA log if the injury or illness is work-related and meets the criteria for reporting (such as inpatient hospitalization, amputation, loss of an eye, or fatality). Employers must record and report all work-related injuries and illnesses of all employees, regardless of the duration of the employee’s employment or the type of employment agreement.
