    Title: OSHA 300 Log
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:
    • For OSHA 300 recordkeeping purposes, both TB infections (positive TB skin tests) and TB disease are recordable in the workplace.
    • If the employee's TB infection which was entered on the OSHA 300 log progresses to TB disease during the 5 year maintenance period, the original entry for the infection must be updated to reflect new information.
    • A positive TB skin test provided within two weeks of employment does not have to be recorded on the OSHA 300 form.
       
    Speaker Notes: According to 29 CFR 1904.11, Recording Criteria for Work-Related Tuberculosis Cases, employers who have employees who have been occupationally exposed to anyone with a known case of active TB, and subsequently develops a tuberculosis infection must record the case. The case must be recorded on the OSHA 300 log by checking the "respiratory condition column."
