Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. (Certain low-risk industries are exempted.)
Establishments classified in the following North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) are required to keep OSHA injury and illness records unless they meet the small employer exemption under 1904.1. Note that the NAICS codes listed here are 2007 NAICS codes. For information on corresponding 2012 and 2017 codes, please visit https://www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/ Also note that the codes below are presented at the Industry Group (or 4-digit) NAICS level. All industries within a listed industry group are covered industries. For example, NAICS 111113 Dry Pea and Bean Farming is part of Industry Group 1111 Oilseed and Grain Farming and is a covered industry.
Employers are not required to keep OSHA injury and illness records for any establishment classified here, unless they are asked in writing to do so by OSHA, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), or a state agency operating under the authority of OSHA or the BLS. All employers, including those partially exempted by reason of company size or industry classification, must report to OSHA any workplace incident that results in a fatality, in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye (see §1904.39).
