Reminder: Employers Must Post Injury/Illness Summary Beginning February 1
OSHA reminds employers of their obligation to post a copy of OSHA’s Form 300A, which summarizes job-related injuries and illnesses logged during 2017. Each year, between February 1 and April 30, the summary must be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted. Businesses with 10 or fewer employees and those in certain low-hazard industries are exempt from OSHA recordkeeping and posting requirements. Visit OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule webpage for more information on recordkeeping requirements.
Employers can now electronically report their 2017 Form 300A. Visit OSHA’s Electronic Submission of Records webpage for more information. Establishments with 20-249 employees in certain high-risk industries must submit information from their 2017 Form 300A by July 1, 2018. Beginning in 2019 and every year thereafter, the information must be submitted by March 2. If you have more than 250 employees, OSHA will be looking for Form 300A and 301. The information for 2016 should have already been submitted.
