Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordkeeping
OSHA provides many avenues for understanding and interpreting whether or not a workplace injury or illness is considered a recordable injury/illness. The OSHA recordkeeping handbook is a great resource and a place to start. In fact you may to bookmark it for your use each time you're recording an injury or illness on your log.

Also, be sure to familarize yourself with section 1904.7 general recording criteria. This will help you determine if the injury or illness meets the criteria for being a work-related recordable. An injury or illness must be considered greater than first-aid to meet the criteria for being a recordable injury or illness. Section 1904.7 includes a definition of first-aid. So if your injury is listed there, unless there are other unusual circumstances, it is not a recordable injury on your recordkeeping log.

No, this is not a complete list of all treatments considered first aid for Part 1904 purposes. This list is made available to you from the OSHA recordkeeping handbook and is also available in the recordkeeping section of OSHA's website.

What if we are exempted from OSHA recordkeeping?
