What's so important about recordkeeping?
Recordkeeping is a critical part of the Marine Corps' safety and health efforts for several reasons:
- Keeping track of work-related injuries and illnesses can help prevent them in the future.
- Using injury and illness data helps identify problem areas. The more you know, the better you can identify and correct hazardous workplace conditions.
- Better administer safety and health programs with accurate records.
- As employee awareness about injuries, illnesses, and hazards in the workplace improves, workers are more likely to follow safe work practices and report workplace hazards.
