DETAILS

14300 - Purpose


Note:
Recording of work-related fatalities, injuries and illnesses does not mean that the employer or employee was at fault, that a Cal/OSHA rule has been violated, or that the employee is eligible for workers’ compensation or other benefits. 

Recording versus Reporting

Recording 

  • Partial exemptions (sections 14300.1 & 14300.2), based on various SIC codes or size of company (i.e., do not have to record work-related fatalities, injuries, and illness on the Cal/OSHA Form 300)

Reporting

  • No exemptions, all employers must:

  • immediately report any serious occupational injury, illness or death to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health, as required by Title 8, Section 342; and

  • occupational injury, illness to the Division of Labor Statistics and Research (DLSR).

Partial Exemption to Recordkeeping Requirements 

Partial Exemption - means that OSHA, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, or a state agency operating under the authority of OSHA, may specifically request in writing an otherwise exempt employer to record occupational injuries and illnesses. No employer is exempt from complying with such a request.
