Time to post your OSHA summary

Tue Jan 29 2019

The Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses Summary - Form 300A must be posted from February 1 to April 30 of each year. The Form 300A summarizes the work-related injuries and illnesses that occurred at your organization during the previous calendar year. For example, any work related injuries occurred in 2018 must be reflected on the Form 300A and posted by February 1, 2019 to April 30 2019. The annual summary must be completed even if no work-related injuries or illnesses occurred during the year.

You must prepare an OSHA summary for each business establishment you operate. Forms can be downloaded from the following link: https://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/RKforms.htm. The form must be certified by own of the following individuals: One of the business owners, a corporate officer, the highest ranking person at the establishment, or their immediate supervisor.

The form 300A must be posted in a conspicuous place where you normally post employee posters. The Form 300A cannot be altered, defaced or covered by other material. If you have employees on the payroll during the posting period, but they do not report at least weekly to the posting location, you must give or mail a copy of the Form 300A to them.

You must keep certain records backing up the information on your OSHA posting. You must keep the following records for five years: Work-Related Injuries and Illness Log (Form 300), Injury and Illness Incident Report (Form 301), Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (Form 300A).
