A: If the accident is being documented as part of standard operating procedures, recordkeeping for consecutive workdays on the shop floor without a lost time accident, insurance purposes, OSHA records, that's one thing. Accidents are commonly documented in plant and other industrial settings. But if you're being wrongly blamed for it as a scapegoat, that's something else, and you may want to learn more about what that could mean for you by contacting an employment attorney. Good luck
