Who can ensure that the program will become an integral part of your business? The OSHA recordkeeping system has five steps: Obtain a report on every injury or job-related illness requiring medical treatment other than basic first aid.

    Add information from your completed checklists to injury information, employee information, and process and equipment information to build a foundation to help you determine what problems exist. This section includes checklists designed to assist you in self-inspection fact-finding. Thousands of workers die each year and many, many more suffer injury or illness from conditions at work. Conduct frequent drills to ensure that all employees know what to do under stressful conditions. Basic OSHA recordkeeping requirements address only injuries and illnesses, so you might consider expanding your own records to include all incidents, including those where no injury or illness resulted.

    OSHA recordkeeping can help the small business employer evaluate the success of safety and health activities. Periodically review these records to look for any patterns or repeat situations. Recognize and reward those who do well and correct those who don't. The next section provides short descriptions and illustrations of each element.
