About Osha 300 Log

When referring to an injury that is not listed on the OSHA 300 Log, the physician or other licensed health care professional should use the name of the specific medical disorder. As you pointed out in your letter, some injuries that are listed on the 300 Log are not covered by OSHA's general health and safety standards. In those cases, the employer is encouraged to document the injury by recording the incident on a Workplace Report for Injury (WRI×. Your question about the “fraction of an inch” was answered by OSHA in 2007, in the context of the “no significant visual impact rule.” This rule generally allows employers to use a visual impact factor (IF) that differs from the IF used by OSHA on the basis of the employee's perception or perception of the hazard. If the employee believes that the hazard was not significant, he or she is likely to conclude that the hazard is not present. The use of IF has been considered an effective means of correcting misconceptions about hazards and, thus, may be a reasonable alternative to further OSHA inspections. However, your question raises a new issue. The IF that OSHA uses on the various Workplace Impact Factors — such as the “1-inch wide open door” (WIG) — and the “sparring pit” (SAS) — the only two physical safety hazards that OSHA has published for public comment — reflect OSHA's judgment as to what employees might perceive as significant and is not a IF. The IF for the WIG is one-sixth; the IF for the SAS is one-eighth; and the IF for “lateral distance” (L-D) is one-eighth. If a participant is standing behind the edge of a fence and is struck by a falling or sliding object, for example, the employee would perceive that the hazard was not significant and the IF would reflect the relative distance from the fence. To correct the use of IF, an employer must apply the same IF to the WIG and the SAS and the L-D. The IF for an incident at the work site is an issue that a company has to consider in each workplace. If an employer's physical safety hazards are not adequately described by “a one-half inch wide open door” (WIGO×, the employer must consider other options. If the employer applies a IF that is only one-half inch, OSHA.

FAQ - Osha 300 Log

What is the purpose of Osha 300 Log?
Because I'm tired of hearing the same old stories and the same old excuses.
Who should complete Osha 300 Log?
It's important to note that we have had very few OSHA 300 failures by OSHA 300. Most have been in industry, but we have had one where there was a fatality. This is in contrast to the high incidence of failures due to noncompliance of OSHA 300 in the commercial sector. Does the experience of this project provide any insights into how these failures would occur? We are not looking to identify specific types of failure here, but rather see the systemic factors that could lead to more of them. In addition to the OSHA 300 project, the most recent (2007) OSHA 350 project is looking to identify the potential risks associated with the construction of tall buildings. What is the biggest problem that you've seen that the OSHA 300 project aims to address? The biggest issue that we identify here is the absence of information in the reporting process of the federal government. They are not reporting anything for a number of reasons: They don't like to be audited by anyone; and they really want to not have the government getting into their business. So if a building falls through and kills somebody, we don't know about it until months and months later, and we don't know what happened. What kind of advice do you have to people that want to start taking the steps recommended by these projects? I would advise them to get their OSHA 301 training right away. The problem with the training is that it is very theoretical. When you are trying to teach a building official that you are going to have to go to see a doctor, you have to tell him that it is going to be very costly to get his/her training. So you have to get as practical as possible. It is important that the building official have a good grasp of how to conduct inspections and how to recognize hazards. Finally, what would you add? I am really excited that OSHA 300 has started, because it has brought visibility to this issue. The more we speak up about this issue, the more we are pushing back on the industry to get their work done right. One issue that OSHA is currently working with them for in this area is that they need to make more of a point that it is a multi-tiered approach to building safety and not just a one-size-fits-all approach.
When do I need to complete Osha 300 Log?
Your log must be submitted by an employer or an employee by the end of the calendar year immediately following the completion of OSHA's safety and health inspection and follow-up requirements, or by June 30 of the following calendar year, whichever is the latter. This requirement will be lifted by June 30 of the year after your last OSHA-inspected workplace inspection. Why is my log submission deadline different? The deadline for OSHA 300 log submission depends on whether OSHA has inspected you as a business or if you have been inspected by an employer (see question number 803(a)(7)(i)). Business If your business has been inspected by OSHA and has made all the required OSHA compliance or corrective action improvements, then OSHA 300 log submission will be required to support the following OSHA compliance actions: OSHA has concluded an immediate investigation. When OSHA conducts an immediate investigation, you must submit your entire investigation file by June 30 of the immediately following calendar year. This deadline will not be missed. OSHA has concluded the results of any other inspection or investigation (OSHA has not inspected the business as a whole). If OSHA conducts an inspection of the business as a whole and recommends that the business implement one or more of the corrective action items below, you must submit your entire inspection file by June 30 of the calendar year immediately preceding you next OSHA-inspected workplace inspection. This deadline will not be missed. Workplace Inspection If your business has been inspected by an employer and has not made required OSHA compliance or corrective action improvements, then your OSHA 300 log submission will be required to support the following OSHA compliance actions: If OSHA recommends further corrective action measures and OSHA is unable to make such a recommendation upon examination, OSHA may make recommendations for corrective actions if OSHA completes all of its inspection activities (such as reviewing OSHA inspections reports and meeting with you or your representative). OSHA has made an oral recommendation for a corrective action to take, but the business hasn't implemented the corrective action recommended. Businesses that have been inspected by OSHA as a whole generally have a one-year deadline when they must submit their inspection results, after which one will be provided per the normal schedule.
Can I create my own Osha 300 Log?
Yes. You can find a list of required OSHA 300 log sheets and templates at. What does the OSHA 300 mean? This means that your employer has fulfilled all the OSHA requirements and standards for your work environment. It does not necessarily mean that your employer is a particularly clean one in terms of workplace hazards, and that the employee is able to work safely and in good conditions throughout the entire job. Nor does it mean that the employer does a great job maintaining equipment safely in your workplace. However, such factors do not prevent a violation of the OSHA 300. Do I have to have a safety program in my workplace? You should. OSHA is concerned about employers who do not have a written safety program in place. An employer would be subject to significant administrative penalties, including the possibility of civil penalties of up to 75,000 for a first violation. (In other words, it's a much more serious violation than a simple citation at your location.) Are OSHA safety standards the same for every workplace? No. Each workplace is different, and each employee is unique. OSHA standards in each workplace can and should be modified as necessary. For example, OSHA requires that an employer have a work area fire-escort and emergency exit plan when it operates an electrical generator within the workplace. It does not, however, require that an employer have a mandatory fire-escort plan for all electrical-generating equipment. If I have an electrical problem, do I have my employer's responsibility? Yes. The employer is responsible for its employee and for its failure to control the problem or a threat to life or property. It is not appropriate for your employer to attempt to eliminate hazards by reducing electricity output to the work area. Therefore, it may well be that your employer must do something to fix the problem, even if it means that it must temporarily shut down or restrict electrical input or output during the problem. Does my employer have to use the same electrical generator, regardless of its power level? Not necessarily. The employer should, in general, consider the possibility that power or the volume of power produced by the device may affect safety conditions. It may be appropriate for your employer to use a generator rated for a higher electrical output than that required by OSHA requirements.
What should I do with Osha 300 Log when it’s complete?
OSHA has advised that the OSHA 300 Log is an excellent training tool because it is available in many formats. For example, the OSHA 300 Log may be submitted with the agency's standard Form 302, Personal Protective Equipment Checklist. What are the OSHA standards for the Personal Protective Equipment used in field employment? Personal protective equipment (PPE) must be designed in a manner consistent with the purposes of the OSHA Standards. These purposes are to protect the worker and to minimize the risk of harm to the worker's health and safety, and the environment. The OSHA Standards specify what type, construction, grade, and materials of PPE must be used. These standards apply to all PPE used to cover all work areas and to all employees (including employees performing non-hazardous duties). The OSHA Standards are published in 29 CFR 1910.213 and 29 CFR 1910.213(a)(5). In which situations can OSHA require personal protective equipment? OSHA may require personal protective equipment (PPE) in any workplace; however, the standard to be used depends on the nature of the hazard. The basic OSHA Standards apply to any employee, regardless of the position they perform. Employees who perform either work to repair machinery, work on railroad ties, or heavy construction work must use PPE. Workers repairing, altering, or working with combustible materials, electrical cables, or machinery must wear PPE. The hazards that these workers may encounter range from falling objects to explosions. Workers performing both work to repair the machinery and heavy construction work must use PPE. The hazards that the workers face may extend to the surrounding population and structures. A worker is exposed to hazards when he or she has contact directly with the product of any industrial operation, whether the substance is produced, produced by a manufacturing process, or otherwise derived from or related to the operation, or when he or she is potentially exposed to the product of an occupational exposure that meets the OSHA Standard(s), any other local standard, or any occupational illness or disease. If you believe that an employer is not following this standard you may request enforcement assistance by contacting us by phone at 800-321-OSHA (6742). Please leave a detailed message with the details of the complaint. If we decide that we need to investigate your complaint we will communicate with you to find the appropriate agency to do that inspection.
How do I get my Osha 300 Log?
OSHA has issued a number of OSHA-300 Logs over the years. The most recent OSHA-300 Log is the 2003 one. You can get a copy of these OSHA-300 logs by going to the OSHA's Website at. If I receive my OSHA 300 Log in the mail, who do I call? If your OSHA 300 Log is sent to you in the mail, you should call the OSHA address listed on it to get the details of that particular OSHA 300 Log. If you do not receive your OSHA 300 Log through the mail, you can write the address on a piece of paper and mail it to OSHA Headquarters at P.O.
What documents do I need to attach to my Osha 300 Log?
A minimum of 60 pages for a written statement from the supervisor of the specific activity within which that particular hazardous material was involved — the supervisor should also be in the supervisor group. 80 to 90 pages for an oral statement from the manager or supervisor of the specific activity of a hazardous material involved — the manager or supervisor in the supervisor group should also be in the supervisor group. 200 pages for a written statement from the owner or operator of the hazardous material — the owner or operator should also be in the owner or operator group. Do I need to attach the OSHA 300 Log form at each workplace and within each hazard class assigned? Yes. OSHA 300 Log forms must be attached at a workplace that is listed in the hazard class in the OSHA regulations (29 CFR 1910.147(b)). An OSHA 300 Log with a hazard class that does not appear in OSHA regulations must be attached at a workplace that is listed in the hazard class in the hazard management manual. All the hazard-management handbooks are available in PDF format on our Hazard Management Handbooks page. Can OSHA 300 Log forms be used by employees who work in the same place as other employees who do not have a Hazardous Substances Management Program (HEMP)? Yes. OSHA 300 Logs may be submitted to a hazardous material manager, supervisor, or site manager for review at any point during an employee's work term at the same place. Is OSHA 1002 or a combination of OSHA 1002 and an additional OSHA 1002 form required for each hazard classification? The Hazardous Substances Management Program (HEMP) is required through 31 C.F.R. § 613.101. This standard lists the hazardous substances that are required to be under the jurisdiction of a local hazardous materials' management program. While OSHA does not require OSHA 300 Logs for each Hazardous Substances Management Program site at which dangerous goods are located, the Hazardous Substances Management Program (HEMP) should provide copies of these OSHA 1002 forms for each hazardous material in a facility. The hazard classification(s)(s) should be determined from the OSHA 1002 or a combination of OSHA 1002 and an additional OSHA 1002 form. Are OSHA 300 Logs available from OSHA's main website? Yes.
What are the different types of Osha 300 Log?

How many people fill out Osha 300 Log each year?
More than 740,000 people filled out OSHA 300 Logs in 2014. How are employers supposed to report illnesses and injuries to OSHA? Employers are required by OSHA to report any employee who suffers from an OSHA-listed injury or illness within two business days of the occurrence. Employers are also required to report any employee who has had a confirmed workplace injury or illness in the past 90 days to OSHA for determination. (See Question 24, OSHA Health Insurance Program Requirements.) How much does OSHA pay in settlements? From 2011 to 2014, OSHA settled more than 3.2 billion in claims for more than 1 billion. From 2011 to 2014, OSHA paid over 2.7 billion (PDF) to employers with 30 or more employees who violated OSHA requirements (PDF). Where can I find more information about the safety, health, and environmental impact of the mining industry? For a directory of OSHA regional offices, please visit ; for a directory of state OSHA offices, go to offices. For more OSHA resources, see. Back to the table of contents. 13. How much is OSHA doing to ensure safe work? OSHA is doing the following things about the safety of the workforce: Develop new safety standards and requirements with the goal of eliminating hazards and reducing injuries, deaths, and illnesses. Ensure that mines, quarries, and other operations conduct physical and chemical tests to ensure safe mining practices. Enforce occupational safety and health standards through education and enforcement efforts. Support local emergency response to worker hazards, injuries, and illnesses. Monitor working conditions on construction sites, farms and ranches, mines, quarries, and other workplaces to identify hazards and compliance needs. Establish standards for workplace safety equipment, ergonomic requirements, and ergonomic education to help workers and employers comply with safety and health programs and requirements. Monitor the development and implementation of safety management programs for all mines, quarries, and operations, and assist local authorities in developing and operating them. Provide technical assistance and assistance with research and development to help prevent and identify hazards and assist communities with their occupational health and safety needs.
Is there a due date for Osha 300 Log?
How about a comment period? Will the employer have to pay for OSHA's costs in order to recover the cost of the fine? We've heard that the “time limit” for filing the complaint was the deadline for the filing of the first case in which OSHA brought such a complaint. If the OSHA 300 team has just begun an investigation or proceeding with a case (like we did after the initial case), but the case was filed by the employer before that, then it will be delayed up to 90 days, until the case completes its 180-day clock. It may be possible that the 180-day clock will stop working upon receipt of a complaint. This happens when an employer has completed the process that leads to the complaint (like hiring an inspector), and is ready to respond. If that happens, the employer should file an expedited complaint on one of the issues that was raised in the complaint. An expedited investigation usually takes less than 120 days in the case where there is no complaint. If the 90-day clock continues to run, and another case is filed in the 180-day clock, then that will stop the time that any subsequent case filed will need to be completed to catch up. We've heard from multiple contractors that there were a variety of problems regarding the amount of time needed for complaints to be submitted, filed, and processed and the amount of penalties OSHA could levy. For instance, if you had to file a complaint or are just seeking an OSHA fine in a few cases, you may find that you have to wait over three months for your complaint to be considered. When the time in that 180 time clock starts ticking, the clock moves up a tick each year until it moves up to 5 minutes per day. So say you have a 30-minute window of time in which you could file your complaint within 120 days. That doesn't sound like much of a time commitment, right? After all you're only being asked about three of the 10 types. For the first three cases OSHA can impose an administrative fine. Each year thereafter that fine can be increased by 200 or 20 percent, whichever is greater. For smaller firms, in contrast, it has been reported that the OSHA 300 process can take up to a year or more. And even if the clock is ticking, it may continue to run, despite the clock stopping at three minutes per day.
