Ohio Recordkeeping - General: What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Ohio is not a “state plan” state; that is, it does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Therefore, private sector workplaces must follow federal recordkeeping rules. For public sector employers, the state has adopted injury and illness recordkeeping rules that mirror federal rules, except that the deadline for recording injuries and illnesses on the recordkeeping forms (6 working days) is less strict than the federal requirement of 7 calendar days. Public employers must use the state injury and illness recordkeeping forms or other forms with equivalent information. See the TABLE in this section for the state-specific safety recordkeeping requirement. The state has adopted the federal requirements for recordkeeping of other specific safety activities by reference.
