Is Your Injury Summary Posted?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reminds employers to post the OSHA 300A summary of the total number of work-related injuries and illnesses that occurred last year. Only the 300A summary: not the OSHA 300 log: must be posted from February 1 to April 30.
The form should be posted in a common area where other employee notices are usually displayed. A copy of the summary must also be made available to workers who move from worksite to worksite or who do not report to any fixed worksite on a regular basis.
The summary must include the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2010 and were logged on the OSHA 300. To assist in calculating incidence rates, information about the annual average number of employees and total hours worked during the calendar year is also required. If a company recorded no injuries or illnesses in 2010, the employer must enter “zero” on the total line. The form must be signed and certified by a company executive.
Employers with 10 or fewer employees and employers in the retail, services, financial, insurance, and real estate sectors are normally exempt from OSHA recordkeeping and posting requirements. A complete list of exempt industries can be found on OSHA’s website.
