Dear Ms. Padgett:

Thank you for your letter dated March 18, requesting an interpretation regarding completion of the OSHA 101 Supplementary Record. Question number 18 on the OSHA 101 clearly requests the name and address of the treating physician. Employers are required to supply this information when applicable. Therefore, substitution of the name of the medical practice in place of the actual physician is not acceptable.

OSHA is currently in the process of revising its entire injury and illness recordkeeping system, including the forms (see enclosed Federal Register notice). We encourage you to comment on the proposed revisions and in particular the provisions regarding the proposed OSHA 301 which is intended to replace the current OSHA 101. I hope you find this information useful. If you have any further questions, please contact us at Area Code (202) 219-6463.

Sincerely,



Bob Whitmore
Chief
Division of Recordkeeping Requirements
