Title: Fatality/Catastrophe Reporting
Type: Text Slide
* These incidents must, however, be recorded on the OSHA 300 Log
Employers must report fatality and catastrophe incidents to OSHA within 8 hours, verbally discussing the case with OSHA. The case can be called in to the local area office or phoned in to 1-800-321-OSHA.
Cases may be recordable but not reportable, for example, a fatality due to a motor vehicle accident on a public highway does not have to be reported within 8 hours, but it is a recordable fatality on the 300 Log.
Agency summary reports must address the date/time of accident, agency/establishment named and location, and consequences, description of operation and the accident, causal factors, applicable standards and their effectiveness, and agency corrective/preventive actions.
