The state has adopted requirements for reporting and investigating accidents that are stricter than federal requirements.
The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (MDLI) administers and enforces workplace safety and health rules in the state.
WORKPLACE ACCIDENT AND INJURY REDUCTION PROGRAM
All employers (except federal) must establish written accident and injury reduction programs which will describe how workplace accidents will be investigated and what corrective action will be taken. The state rules do not prescribe accident report procedures or how an accident investigation must be done. Employers may develop their own procedures.
See the state Safety Plans analysis for more information.
