Title: 1904.31 – Covered Employees
Type: Text Slide
Employees on the payroll must be included in the employer’s records, unless the company is acting as a temporary help service.
Employees not covered in the OSH Act are also not included in the OSHA records. These include unpaid volunteers, sole proprietors, family members on family farms, domestic workers in residential settings.
Temporary workers will be the employees of the party exercising day-to-day control over them, and the supervising party will record their injuries and illnesses.
The employer and the temporary help service can discuss each case to see who is recording it. We do not want a case to be recorded twice if it can be avoided.
