Tennessee Recordkeeping - General: What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Tennessee is a “state-plan” state; that is, it has a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. Consequently, both public and private sector employers are governed by the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Act. The state’s illness and injury and medical records rules and recordkeeping rules for all other work activities in private sector workplaces except for safety committees follow federal rules. Recordkeeping requirements are more strict for government workplaces with fewer than 10 employees, and for private and public sector workplaces with safety committees. See TABLE 1 for state-specific safety recordkeeping requirements.
