The OSHA 300 Logs, the privacy case list, the annual summary, and the OSHA 301 Incident Report form must be saved for five years following the end of the calendar year that the records cover. During the period of storage, you must update the stored OSHA 300 Log to include newly discovered recordable injuries and illnesses and to show any changes that occurred in the classification of previously recorded injuries and illnesses. If the description or outcome changes, you must remove or line through the original entry and then enter the new information. The annual summary and the OSHA 301 Incident Reports do not have to be updated.(29 C.F.R. § 1904.33)
