To Report a Fatality or Accident to South Carolina OSHA
South Carolina’s OSHA's updated recordkeeping rule expands the list of severe injuries that employers must report to SC OSHA.
As of June 26, 2015, all employers must report to the South Carolina OSHA office:
1. All work-related fatalities within 8 hours
2. All work-related inpatient hospitalizations, all amputations and all losses of an eye within 24 hours.
Only fatalities occurring within 30 days of the work-related incident must be reported to SC OSHA. Further, for an in-patient hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye, these incidents must be reported to SC OSHA only if they occur within 24 hours of the work-related incident.
Employers should call (803) 896-7672. The number is answered 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
