Reporting And Data

Hospitals must report incidents of workplace violence that involve the use of physical force against an employee or other provider of care by a patient or a person accompanying a patient; involves the use of a firearm or other dangerous weapon; or presents a realistic possibility of death or serious physical harm.

Employers must notify NVOSHA of all workplace accidents involving an employee fatality or fatalities within 8 hours after learning of the accident. Employers must report to NVOSHA all inpatient hospitalizations of one or more employees, amputations of a part of an employee’s body or an employee’s loss of an eye within 24 hours after learning of the hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye. Employers must also record on the OSHA 300 Log the recordable injuries and illnesses of all employees on your payroll, whether they are labor, executive, hourly, salary, part-time, seasonal, or migrant workers. You also must record the recordable injuries and illnesses that occur to employees who are not on your payroll if you supervise these employees on a day-to-day basis. If your business is organized as a sole proprietorship or partnership, the owner or partners are not considered employees for recordkeeping purposes. The OSHA 300-A Annual Summary must also be posted each year.
