How do I get my OSHA accident report? 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a division of the Department of Labor that regulates workplace safety. Whether you have filed a report with OSHA, or you are interested in the safety of your company, you may wish to review the reports that OSHA maintains on their online database at https://www.osha.gov/pls/imis/establishment.html

The more specific search parameters that are entered, the better your search results. The more general your search information, the more unrelated reports you may have to read through. If you are searching for an accident that was more serious and involved a fatality and/or catastrophe, you can visit https://www.osha.gov/pls/imis/accidentsearch.html. Results will be limited to only reports with a fatality and/or catastrophe and are only available for completed investigations that occurred over one year from the time of your search. 

If you are unable to access your OSHA accident report online, you can submit an inquiry through the OSHA Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) office. You must make the request in writing and include a reasonable description of the reports or records you need and specify the format in which you want those reports or records (generally, print or electronic). You do not need to provide a specific form for a FOIA request, however the National Freedom of Information Coalition has sample letters available at https://www.nfoic.org/sample-foia-request-letters

There may be fees associated with photocopying or time spent looking for your request. If you are concerned about fees or turnaround time, you can contact the National OSHA office at 800-321-6742. If you anticipate significant fees, you may request a fee waiver, with a form available at https://www.nfoic.org/sample-foia-request-letters. Forms should be submitted to the appropriate regional FOIA coordinator which can be found here: https://www.osha.gov/foia. Nationwide requests can also be made at: OSHA National Office at U.S. Department of Labor – OSHA, FOIA Officer, Rm. N3647, 200 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington DC 20210. You can also fax your request to 202-693-1635, or email [email protected] 

Once your request is received, the FOIA office will send you a letter acknowledging your request and approximate date of when your request will be fulfilled. This letter will also have a unique tracking number that can be used to track the status of your request at https://www.dol.gov/foia/.
