Because of this, OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1904 requires that businesses with more than 10 employees and/or in specific industries create and maintain a record of on-the-job illnesses and injuries. Doing so is not only required by law, but also an easy way to identify and eliminate potential risks to employee safety.
