OSHA Form 300A Must be Posted February 1st

Lisa Volk and Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

Beginning February 1st each year, employers are required to post a summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during the previous year. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that the summary, OSHA Form 300A, remains posted from February 1 through April 30. Employers with ten or fewer employees are exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness record keeping and posting requirements. For more information and a link to the form and directions for completion, go to the OSHA website at https://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/index.html.

Reminder: Effective January 1, 2015 employers must report an expanded list of injuries and OSHA has revised the requirements for when an employer must report work-related hospitalizations. See attached for more information.
