MIOSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping
Employers with 11 or more employees are covered by MIOSHA's
recordkeeping requirements. Covered employers must prepare and maintain records
of work-related injuries and illnesses. Review Part 11. Recording
and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses, to see exactly which cases
If you have 10 or fewer employees during all of the last calendar year or
your business is classified in a partially exempt industry, you do not have to
keep injury and illness records, unless MIOSHA, the bureau of labor statistics
(BLS), or the United States department of labor (OSHA), informs you, in
writing, that you must keep records. These exemptions apply to recordkeeping
only, and do not excuse any employer from other MIOSHA requirements or from
compliance with all applicable MIOSHA safety and health standards.
Employers must enter each recordable injury and illness on the MIOSHA Forms 300
within seven calendar days of receiving the information that an injury or
illness has occurred. The three required forms:
- MIOSHA Form
300 Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, to list injuries and
illnesses and track days away from work, restricted or transferred. This
form can be printed on legal-sized paper.
- MIOSHA Form
301 Injury and Illness Incident Report, to record supplementary
information about recordable cases. This form gives more details about how
the injury or illness occurred.
- MIOSHA Form
300A Summary for Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, to show totals
for the year in each category along with employees and hours worked. This
form provides additional data to make it easier for employers to calculate
incidence rates. Employers must post the MIOSHA Form
300A Summary of the previous calendar year from February 1 to April
30. Companies with no injuries or illnesses in the previous calendar year
must post the form with zeros on the total line.
Maximum flexibility has been provided so employers can keep all the
information on computers, at a central location, or on alternative forms, as
long as the information is compatible and the data can be produced when needed.
Disease Reporting Requirements
As a result of Executive Orders No. 1996-1, 1996-2 and 2003-18 and Part 56
of P.A. 368 of 1978, a physician, hospital, clinic or employer must report
known or suspected cases of occupational diseases or workplace
aggravated health conditions to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs within 10 days after discovery of the disease or
condition on a report form furnished by the department. This requirement does
not apply to occupational injuries.
