    Title: Recordkeeping
    Type: Text Slide

    Important records employers may maintain include:
    • OSHA Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300)
    • Medical reports of work injury and supervisors' reports of recorded assaults
    • Records of incidents of abuse, verbal attacks or aggressive behavior
    • Documentation of minutes of safety meetings, hazards analyses, and corrective actions
    • Records of all training programs, attendees and trainers qualifications

    Speaker Notes: Good records helps employers determine the severity of the risks, evaluate the methods of hazard control, and identify training needs.

    Records can be especially useful to large organizations and members of a business group or trade association who
    "pool" data.

    Through trend analysis, records of injuries, illnesses, accidents, assaults, hazards, corrective actions, histories and training can help identify problems and solutions for an effective program.

    Employers can tailor their recordkeeping practices to the needs of their violence prevention program. Maintaining records enables employers to monitor ongoing efforts to deter workplace violence to determine if violence prevention program is working and to identify ways to improve it.
