The Workers’ Compensation Division has released a new version of the Tennessee First Report of Work Injury, Form C20. The form has been modified to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements and the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC) standards for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
OSHA REQUIREMENTS: The OSHA 200 log has been replaced with the OSHA 300 log. The OSHA 101 form has been replaced with the OSHA 301 "Injury and Illness Incident Report".
Historically, the "Tennessee First Report of Work Injury" (First Report) has been an allowable substitute for the OSHA 101 form. The First Report has been revised to meet the new OSHA requirements so that the substitution can continue. Use of the revised First Report will eliminate the need for filing the OSHA 301.
OSHA requires employers to maintain a copy of either the First Report or the OSHA 301 on site and available to Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA) representatives
