Importance of PERRP recordkeeping
Injury and illness recordkeeping is an integral component of a successful workplace safety and health program. Accurate recordkeeping helps public employers analyze their working environment for existing and predictable hazards that are likely to cause serious injuries and illnesses.

PERRP recordkeeping forms
All Ohio public employers must complete the PERRP recordkeeping forms (or an equivalent). This includes the State of Ohio and its instrumentalities; and "any political subdivisions and their instrumentalities, including any county, county or state hospital, municipal corporation, city, village, township, park district, school district, state institutions of higher learning, public or special district, state agency, authority, commission or board" as defined in Ohio Revised Code 4167.01.
