    Title: Fatality/Catastrophe Reporting
    Type: Text Slide

    • Report orally within 8 hours any work-related fatality or incident involving 3 or more in-patient hospitalizations
    • Do not need to report highway or public street motor vehicle accidents (outside of a construction work zone)*
    • Do not need to report commercial airplane, train, subway or bus accidents*
    • Must provide the Office of Federal Agency Programs a summary report of each fatal and catastrophic accident investigation
    * These incidents must, however, be recorded on the OSHA 300 Log

    Speaker Notes:

    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.
