|Step 1:||Complete this survey only for the establishment(s) noted on the front cover under "Report for: ." If you are unsure, please call the number(s) listed on the front of this form in the "For Help:" section.
|Step 2:||Check "Your Company Name" printed on the front cover. Make any necessary corrections directly on the front cover.|
|Step 3:||Refer to your establishment's OSHA Forms for Recording Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. Copies of these forms were mailed to you in late 2017.

|Step 5:||Return this survey and any attachments in the enclosed envelope within 30 days of the date your establishment received it.|
Steps to calculate your annual average number of employees for 2021 and to estimate your total hours worked for 2021 are presented on page 4.
|Step 1:||Go to your completed OSHA Form 300.
Note each case that has a check in column (H) and/or Column(I).
These are the only cases you should report.
|Step 2:||Fill out one Injury and Illness Case Form for each case that you identified in Step 1. You can find most of the information on a supplementary document such as the Injury and Illness Incident Report (OSHA Form 301), a workers' compensation report, an accident report, or an insurance form.|
|Step 3:||If more than one establishment is noted on the front cover under "Report for this Location," be sure to look at all your OSHA Form 300's to find which cases to report.|
|Step 4:||We have designed this survey to ensure that you do not have to report more than 8 cases. If you have more than 8 cases, please go to Section 5: If You Need Help . . . at the back of this booklet and call the phone number(s) listed for your State for assistance. If you need additional Injury and Illness Case Forms, you may either photocopy a blank form or go to Section 5: If You Need Help . . . at the back of this booklet and call the phone number(s) listed for your State.|
