February 1 is upon us! Employers required to post a 300A, must do so whether or not you had any injuries in the past year. It is required that the 300A is signed by an executive of the company before it is posted and that it is posted in an accessible location where employees can easily see it. Theh 300A must remain posted through April 30.
Employers required to electronically submit their 300A, must also fulfill the posting requirements from February 1 through April 30.
Safety.BLR.com establishes the requirements.
Under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) recordkeeping rule, employers that are required to keep and maintain an OSHA injury and illness 300 log must post their 300A annual summary in each establishment where employee notices are normally posted from February 1 to April 30. The 300A form summarizes the recordable work-related injuries and illnesses in 2017.
After the end of the year, employers must review the 300 log to verify its accuracy, summarize the 300 log information on the 300A summary form, and certify the summary (a company executive must sign the certification).
Employers with 10 or fewer employees or those listed in certain low-hazard industries are not required to post the 300A annual summary.
Employers required to electronically submit their 300A data by July 1, 2018, are also required to post the 300A summary where employee notices are normally posted from February 1 to April 30.
