Maryanne (OSHA) shared the following in response to numerous calls:

Recording workplace exposures to COVID-19:



OSHA recordkeeping requirements at 29 CFR Part 1904 mandate covered employers record certain work-related injuries and illnesses on their OSHA 300 log.


COVID-19 can be a recordable illness if a worker is infected as a result of performing their work-related duties. However, employers are only responsible for recording cases of COVID-19 if all of the following are met:


1.    The case is a confirmed case of COVID-19 (see CDC information on persons under investigation and presumptive positive and laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19);

2.    The case is work-related, as defined by 29 CFR 1904.5; and

3.    The case involves one or more of the general recording criteria set forth in 29 CFR 1904.7 (e.g. medical treatment beyond first-aid, days away from work).


Visit OSHA’s Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements page for more information.


OSHA’s COVID-19 page offers additional guidance. 



Thank You OSHA STL
