• OSHA: Recording workplace exposures to COVID-19

    OSHA recordkeeping requirements at 29 CFR Part 1904 mandate covered employers record certain work-related injuries and illnesses on their OSHA 300 log. 

    COVID-19 can be a recordable illness if a worker is infected as a result of performing their work-related duties. However, employers are only responsible for recording cases of COVID-19 if all of the following are met:

    1.  The case is a confirmed case of COVID-19 (see CDC Information on persons under investigation and presumptive positive and laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19); 
    2.  The case is work-related, or defined by 29 CFR 1904.5; and 
    3.  The case involves one or more of the general recording criteria set for in 29 CFR 1904.7 (e.g. medical treatment beyond first-aid, days away from work).
