Utah has adopted the federal rules for work-related illness and injury recordkeeping and the maintenance of employee medical records by reference (R614-1-8 and R614-1-12). The state has also adopted a stricter deadline for making recordable cases available for inspection and stricter rules for reporting injuries and illnesses.
The Utah Labor Commission/Division of Occupational Safety and Health (UOSH) administers and enforces safety and health rules for private and public sector workplaces in the state.
INJURY AND ILLNESS RECORDS
Each employer must have available for inspection a supplementary record (Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Form 301) at each establishment within 6 working days after receiving information that a recordable case has occurred. The federal standard for availability is 7 days.
Utah Industrial Accidents Form 122. Employers may use the Workers' Compensation First Report of Injury or Illness form (Utah Industrial Accidents Form 122) in lieu of the federal OSHA Incident Report Form 301. FATALITY AND INJURY REPORTS

In addition to the federal requirement for reporting any fatality, each employer must notify UOSH of any work-related disabling, serious, or significant injury and of any occupational disease incident in person or by calling 801-530-6901.
