Post OSHA Form 300A by February 1

OSHA requires that employers post, from February 1 to April 30, a summary of the job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred last year. Employers are only required to post the Summary (OSHA Form 300A), not the OSHA 300 Log. And those employers with 10 or fewer employees are normally exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping and posting requirements.

The summary must list the total numbers of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2016 and were logged on the OSHA 300 form. Employment information about annual average number of employees and total hours worked during the calendar year is also required.

Companies with no recordable injuries or illnesses in 2016 must post the form with zeros on the total line. All establishment summaries must be certified by a company executive.

The form should be displayed in a common area wherever notices to employees are usually posted. A copy of the summary must be made available to employees who move between work sites, such as construction workers, and employees who do not report to any one location on a regular basis.
