Print Record Keeping The law requires employers to keep records of all accidents, including first aid cases, for at least 18 years, whether filing a claim or not. Form C-2 "Employers' Report of Work-Related Injury or Illness," need not be filed with NYSIF or the WCB if the injury does not result in a claim, but should be maintained and kept on file by the employer of all accidents in case an accident that is not reportable later becomes a claim. Employees have 30 days to give employers written notice of an injury and up to two years to file a report of injury or illness. NYSIF eFROI® retains a permanent report of injury, retrievable on the web with your claim number or transaction number, policy number and the last four digits of the claimant's social security number. This is a convenient method of meeting Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) record keeping requirements. Failure to comply with OSHA record keeping requirements is a misdemeanor that could cost you up to $3,500 in fines and penalties, as well as escalate claim costs.
