Every year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to post a summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred over the previous year.
Employers are required to post only the summary (OSHA Form 300A)– not the OSHA 300 Log – from Feb. 1 to April 30.
Contents. The summary must list the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in the past year and were logged on the OSHA 300 form.
Employment information about annual average number of employees and total hours worked during the calendar year also is required to assist in calculating incidence rates.
Companies with no recordable injuries or illnesses in the previous year must post the form with zeros on the total line. All establishment summaries must be certified by a company executive.
Report availability. The form is to be displayed in a common area, wherever notices to employees usually are posted. Employers also must make a copy of the form available to any employee who requests it.
