Compliance Poster Company reminds employers covered by OSHA’s record-keeping rule to prepare and post the OSHA 300A “Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses” by February 1. The OSHA 300A Summary must be posted from February 1 through April 30 at all covered establishments in visible locations where notices are customarily posted so that employees are aware of injuries and illnesses occurring in their workplace.

All establishments covered by 29 CFR Part 1904 must complete the “Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses” even if there were no work-related injuries or illnesses that occurred during the year. It is important to note that employers must keep a log for each establishment or site. That means a separate log and summary must be kept for each physical location that is expected to be in operation for one year or longer.

You may be wondering when an injury or illness is considered work-related. Injuries and illnesses are considered work-related when an event or exposure in the work environment caused or contributed to the condition or under law significantly aggravated a preexisting condition. The establishment or site and other locations where one or more employees work or are present as a condition of their employment are considered work environments. Employers must record injuries and illnesses that result in the following:

  1. death,
  2. loss of consciousness,
  3. days away from work,
  4. restricted work activity or job transfer, or
  5. medical treatment beyond first aid, as well as,
  6. significant work-related injuries and illnesses as they meet additional criteria specified under the law.

Every establishment covered by the Occupational Health and Safety Act is subject to inspection by OSHA compliance officers. Post the OSHA Form 300A now to avoid penalties for non-compliance with the Act. For details on the Act visit http://www.dol.gov/compliance/guide/osha.htm
