Incidence rates are a metric used to compare your company’s safety performance against a national or state average. This comparison is a safety benchmark to gauge performance with other companies in the same business group and to make an “apples to apples” comparison. Different business groups and industries will have different average rates due to a number of factors.

OSHA requires that an OSHA 300A Summary be completed and posted every year. The OSHA 300 log and 300A Summary will have the information needed to find your rate. Use the tool below to calculate your company’s rate. It is important to make sure you’re recording actual recordable injuries. The criteria can be confusing and circumstances around an injury make it complex. Do not over report injuries on your OSHA 300 log or submit your logs to owners with incorrect data. If you have questions or need assistance, our Safety Consulting Team can provide a recordable injury and 300 Log analysis.
