RECORDKEEPING REQUIREMENTS OF THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ACT
On December 29, 1970, the President signed into law the Williams-Steiger
Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, which became effective April 28, 1971.
The purpose of this legislation is to assure safe and healthful working conditions
for the nation's wage earners.
Beginning January 1, 1973, every employer engaged in any business affecting
commerce who had seven or more employees during any one day in 1972 must keep occu-
pational injury and illness records for his employees in the establishment at which
his employees usually report to work.
Recordkeeping requirements under the Occupational Safety and Health Act may
differ from your State workmen's compensation requirements.
Every employer must maintain in each establishment:
a log (OSHA Form 100) of recordable occupational injuries and illnesses,
and supplemental records (OSHA Form 101) of each occupational injury or illness.
Every employer must keep the records up to date, have them available to govern-
meniit repriesentatives, a id post for 30 days a su[iiCuiaiLy of all occupatiuial iliju'ri.LS
and illnesses at the conclusion of the calendar year. In addition, employers must
report to the Secretary of Labor within 48 hours each accident or health hazard
that results in one or more fatalities or hospitalization of five or more employees.
The forms necessary to keep these records are the:
Log of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 100)
Supplementary Record of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 101)
Summary of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 102)
Recordkeeping booklet including instructions for completing the forms are
printed on the back of each form. The forms are available free from regional offices
of the Bureau of Labor Statistics located in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta,
Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City, Denver, San Francisco, and Seattle or area office
at 3200 East Oakland Park Boulevard, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida 33308.
The law requires that employees be informed of job safety and health protection
provided under the Act. A poster found in the Recordkeeping booklet listed above,
must be posted in a prominent place in the establishment to which the employees
usually report to work. The poster briefly states the intent and coverage of the
Act and the responsibilities of employers and employees to maintain safe and
healthful working conditions.

Log of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses
Each recordable occupational injury and occupational illness must be entered
on a log of cases (OSHA Form 100) within two working days of receiving information
that a recordable case has occurred. Logs must be kept current and retained for
five (5) years at employers office following the end of the calendar year to which
Logs are to be maintained for three purposes:
1. Logs for the prior five (5) year period must be available in the establish-
ment without delay and at reasonable times for examination by representatives of
the Department of Labor or the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, or
States accorded jurisdiction under the Act.
2. The log will be used in preparing the annual summary of Occupational
Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 102) which must be posted in every establishment
and kept on file for 5 years by employer.
3. Those establishments selected to participate in a statistical program will
be required to prepare a report based on entries in this log.
In addition, the log will aid in reviewing the occupational injury and illness
experience of employees.
Supplementary Record of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses
To supplement the Log of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA No. 100),
each establishment must maintain a record of each recordable occupational injury or
illness. Workmen's compensation, insurance, or other reports are acceptable as
records if they contain all facts listed below or are supplemented to do so. If no
suitable report is made for other purposes this form (OSHA No. 101) may be used or
the necessary facts can be listed on a separate plain sheet of paper. These records
must also be available in the establishment without delay and at reasonable times
for examination by representatives of the Department of Labor and the Department of
Health, Education, and Welfare, and States accorded jurisdiction under the Act.
The records must be maintained for a period of not less than five years following
the end of the calendar year to which they relate.
Summary Occupational Injuries and Illnesses
Every employer is required to prepare a summary of the occupational injury
and illness experience of the employees in each of his establishments at the end of
each year within one month following the end of that year. The summary must be
signed by a company official and posted in a place accessible to the employees.
OSHA Form 102 is to be used for this summary.

FLORIDA SOUTHERN COLLEGE CITRUS CLUB AWARD
The Florida Southern College Citrus Club Award was presented to Dr. William
Grierson at the recent Alumni Citrus Club Banquet. Dr. Grierson has been a
supporter of the citrus teaching program at Florida Southern College for many
years. For some 8 years, he taught a course in packinghouse procedures not only
for the Florida Southern College students but also those people in the citrus
industry who wanted to further their training in this area. Dr. Grierson has
shown a great deal of interest in the students at FSC and has helped to obtain
scholarship funds that were used by students. This Citrus Club Award honors
Dr. Grierson and comes with the appreciation and thanks of the Citrus Club and
Citrus Institute. It was presented at the banquet for which Dr. Grierson served
as a most delightful master of ceremonies.
