Time to Complete Cal-OSHA Log 300 & Form 300A

California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA) Log 300 reporting requirements differ from the record keeping and reporting requirements related to workers’ compensation. If you are required to record incidents on Log 300, you must also file a summary Form 300A at the end of each year. (Logs can be found on Cal OSHA’s website).

You must record and maintain records of workplace injuries and illnesses unless you fall into either of the following categories:

  • You had 10 or fewer employees during the preceding calendar year; or
  • Your company is classified in a low-hazard Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) category.
Incidents You Must Record

You are required to record:
  • All new injuries;
  • A “re-injury” or aggravation of a previous injury to the employee; or
  • A new illness or recurring illness (exception: recurrence of symptoms of a chronic illness such as asbestosis, silicosis, or an occupationally related cancer).
You are only required to record incidents if they are work-related. These may include incidents that take place away from the workplace, if the employee was somewhere because of, or while engaged in, a work-related activity. Injuries that occur while commuting to and from work are excluded, but an injury that occurs while traveling on company business is considered work-related except while the employee is engaged in purely personal activities.

For more information on completing these logs, please contact our office.
