County Mutual White Paper: 2020 DSPS Annual Summary of Work-Related Injuries & Illnesses

As you may know, all Wisconsin public employers must complete and submit a DSPS 2020 Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses report by March 1, 2021, to the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services. This summary must also be posted in the workplace from March 2, 2021, to April 30, 2021. 

We've prepared a helpful step-by-step guide to assist you in preparing the summary report.

With the COVID-19 Pandemic occurring throughout this reporting year - many have questions about the recordability of COVID-19 cases in the workplace. We have included helpful information on determining whether or not to record these cases on your log.

Note: Beginning in 2018, DSPS began utilizing an online system for annual reporting. After entering information into the system, you can print and post a summary. If you are unsure how to access the online system or have questions about the online reporting process, you should contact your DSPS Regional Inspector. A listing of regional inspectors can be found here.
