Learn which cases should be on your OSHA 300 log

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) indicated COVID-19 may be a recordable illness as part of employer’s annual OSHA 300 log if a worker was infected as a result of performing work-related duties.

A COVID-19 case is only recordable if it meets all three of the following criteria:

  1. COVID-19 was confirmed as part of Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) protocols for a person under investigation, presumptive positive or as a laboratory-confirmed case.
  2. The case is work-related as defined under OSHA standard 29 CFR 1904.5.
  3. The case involves one or more of the recording criteria specified in OSHA standard 29 CFR 1904.7.

Employees who have gotten the common cold or the flu are not considered reportable incidents. Follow your employer’s protocols.
