Many employers are now asking whether they must record cases of COVID-19 on their Occupational Safety and Health Administration 300 Logs or report the cases to OSHA. ABC is aware of concerns expressed by ABC members on this issue. 

As a member of the Construction Industry Safety Coalition, ABC sent a letter to OSHA today regarding the agency’s recordkeeping and respirator enforcement during the COVID-19 outbreak. Please refer to the attached letter.

ABC general counsel Littler Mendelson P.C. has written an article that covers the following questions:

  • Is COVID-19 Considered an “Illness” Under OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rules?
  • When Is a COVID-19 Case Considered Recordable?
  • When Is a COVID-19 Case Reportable?

Staff will continue to work with OSHA and provide future updates.
