Reportable Injury

Employers, not employees, determine whether an injury is reportable. The employer may refer the employee to a doctor to determine if the injury is reportable to OSHA but is not required to do so. The injury must be work related. A work-related injury includes injuries or illnesses that are a direct result of the work environment of the employee. If an employee injures himself while on a break, the injury is considered work related and reportable as long as it occurred during normal working hours.
