Last September, OSHA announced new requirements for reporting severe injuries. These new rules are effective in OSHA states (like Michigan) beginning January 1, 2015, and Michigan intends to adopt the new federal rules by reference. The changes will require employers to file a detailed report within eight hours of fatal workplace accidents. Severe on-the-job injuries that do not result in death, but require hospitalization must be reported within 24 hours, and such reports must be filed regardless of the size of the business. All employers, including those partially exempted by reason of company size or industry classification, will be required to comply with the new severe injury and illness reporting requirements.
Below is the link for you to download MIOSHA forms. The forms were developed in accordance with federal changes in recordkeeping. Each form is listed below with a general description and instructions.
MIOSHA Form 300
Employers must enter each recordable injury and illness on the MIOSHA Forms 300 and 301 within seven calendar days of receiving the information that an injury or illness has occurred. Additionally, all days of missed work must be counted, including holidays and weekends.
MIOSHA Form 300A
This is a summary of MIOSHA Form 300A, which must be posted from February 1st to April 30th. The form also requires the signature of a company executive.
MIOSHA Form 301
The new MIOSHA Form 301 is the equivalent of an accident report and must also be completed within seven calendar days of a recordable incident. You may already be filling out similar forms for your insurance carrier. Completed 301 Forms must be kept on file at the office, but are not sent to MIOSHA after each incident.
