Comparison: State vs. Federal
Oregon is a “state plan” state; that is, it has its own federally approved occupational safety and health program. The state has adopted safety and health rules for recordkeeping that follow federal rules, and employers must use the state’s injury and illness incident report or equivalent form for each recordable injury or illness that is entered on the OSHA 300 Log. The state has adopted recordkeeping rules for cranes that are stricter than federal rules. There are state rules for safety committee meetings records; there are no federal requirements for safety committees. See the TABLE in this section for state-specific safety requirements.
See the national section RECORDKEEPING for more information on federal recordkeeping requirements.
Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services’ Occupational Safety and Health Division (OR-OSHA) administers and enforces workplace safety and health recordkeeping requirements in public and private sector workplaces in Oregon.
