Yes, all employers are required to report serious injuries by contacting OSHA within 8 hours of a work-related fatality and within 24 hours of work-related in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of eye (see Severe Injury Reporting ). You may also be required to keep OSHA logs if you have over 10 employees and you are not on the partially exempt list Watch this OSHA 15 minute video to learn more about how to maintain your OSHA logs.

9- If an employee in my establishment is a contractor’s employee, must I record an injury or illness occurring to that employee?
If the contractor’s employee is under the day-to-day supervision of the contractor, the contractor is responsible for recording the injury or illness. If you supervise the contractor employee’s work on a day-to-day basis, you must record the injury or illness.

11- If I had no losses do I still need to electronically file?
