OSHA's injury/illness record-keeping systems are often neglected, misinterpreted or improperly maintained. Workers' compensation injury reports are not enough to establish compliance. OSHA also requires an annual report that summarizes injuries/illnesses, including not only lost-time accidents, but also restricted-duty cases, and any incident that needed "medical attention".
