Your OSHA Form 300-A's Must Be Posted By February 1, Probably
OSHA requires most employers with 10 or more employees to post a summary of work-related injuries and illnesses each year.
If you fall within the group of employers who must post a Form 300-A, you must include work-related fatalities, injuries, and illnesses on the Form 300 Log if they include:
- days away from work,
- restricted work or transfer to another job,
- medical treatment beyond first aid,
- loss of consciousness, or
- a significant injury or illness diagnosed by a physician or other licensed healthcare professional.
Generally, illnesses and injuries that are recorded on the Form 300 Log must also be recorded in an OSHA Form 301 Incident Report.
Employers must post Form 300-A, which is a summary of the illnesses and injuries included in the Form 300 Log and Form 301 Incident Report, in the workplace in a location that is likely to be seen by employees from February 1 through April 30.
I encourage you to meet this quickly approaching deadline in order to avoid potential penalties.
