Dear Mr. Ament:

Thank you for your letter dated August 4, requesting an interpretation regarding the determination of the proper date of injury or illness for OSHA recordkeeping purposes. For occupational injuries, enter the actual date of the work accident which resulted in the injury. For occupational illnesses, enter the actual date of initial diagnosis of the illness, or, if absence from work occurred before diagnosis, enter the date of absence attributable to the illness which was later diagnosed or detected (see section A on page 9 of the Recordkeeping Guidelines).

I hope you find this information useful. If you have any further questions or comments, please contact me at Area Code (202) 219-6463.

Sincerely,



Stephen A. Newell Director
Office of Statistics
