Use key words to search Q&As on OSHA's injury and illness recordkeeping requirements for employers. From this page you can search a repository of questions and answers from the regulation rule itself as well as from requests for information submitted to the Agency. Simply type any key word(s) into the input field below, then select the Search button to view a list of resulting questions that link to answers. If a search on this page does not answer your question, you can submit your question using OSHA's e-correspondence form.
This search function only returns exact matches from the Question and Answer text. For example, a search on the work 'truck' will return Q&A with the word 'truck' or 'trucking' or 'struck' in them. A search on the word 'truck' with a space in front and behind will only return Q&A with the work 'truck' in it.
If your search does not provide the question and answer you are looking for, try alternative words that may be in found in similar situations. For example, if you search 'cat bite' and find nothing, try 'dog bite' or 'animal bite' instead. Or narrow the search to just 'bite' and see what you get. Also try 'sting' for similar Q&A.

Note: Unless the search results table indicates that the source for the Q&A is the recordkeeping rule (29 CFR 1904), the Q&As presented do not themselves impose enforceable recordkeeping or reporting obligations, since such obligations are imposed only by the regulation.
