FAQ and About Us


Do I need to install software?

No, the OSHA Recordable Decision Tool™ is used online — no software to download or install.  It is not an app, so you don’t need to install it.  You use it through this website.

Why should I trust these tools?

The tools have been built using all publicly available OSHA resources, as well as discussions with OSHA’s own recordkeeping specialists and access to compliance-inspector manuals.  These are the same authoritative resources OSHA would use when inspecting your logs.

How long does it take to use the OSHA Recordable Decision Tool™?

That depends on the complexity of the injury/illness case.  The simplest case might take just 2 minutes; a very complex case might take 15 minutes.

Can I use my subscription to show the videos to my coworkers or employees?

No, a subscription is for one person to use themselves.  If you need multiple subscriptions, contact us for possible bulk pricing.

How long is a membership subscription?

One year from the date of purchase, renewable annually.
