If an injury occurs, what must be reported to OSHA?

Workplace health and safety initiatives help prevent injuries and illnesses and protect a dealership’s most valuable asset—its employees. But, workplace accidents do occur occasionally. In addition to following appropriate first aid and emergency procedures, dealers must report all work-related fatalities, in-patient hospitalizations of one or more employees, amputations, and eye losses to OSHA. Report fatalities occurring within 30 days of a work-related incident within 8 hours after discovery, and in-patient hospitalizations, amputations, or eye losses occurring within 24 hours of a work-related incident within 24 hours after discovery. Report by telephone, either to the nearest OSHA Area Office (during business hours) or to the national 24-hour OSHA Hotline: 1-800-321-OSHA (6742).
