Don’t Forget to Post Injury and Illness Information

175562944All employers must post OSHA Form 300A, which summarizes the job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in the previous year, by Feb. 1 and keep it posted until April 30 per Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordkeeping mandates.

The summary must include the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses (which also have new recordkeeping requirements) that occurred in 2014 and were logged on OSHA Form 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 2014, the employer must enter “zero” on the total line. The form must be signed and certified by a company executive. Form 300A should be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted.

Also, please be reminded that employers with 10 or fewer employees and employers in certain industries are usually exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping and posting requirements.

For more information, visit the OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements online or NAHB’s Recordkeeping Toolkit.
