Certain Employers Subject to OSH Act Must Post Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses from February 1 - April 30

Employers subject to the record keeping requirements of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act are reminded to post the OSHA Form 300A, Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, from February 1 – April 30, 2016. The Form 300A lists the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during the previous year and must be posted even if no work-related injuries or illnesses occurred during the year. It should be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted so that employees are aware of the injuries and illnesses occurring in the workplace.

A company executive must certify that he or she has examined the OSHA 300 Log and that he or she reasonably believes—based on his or her knowledge of the process by which the information was recorded—that the annual summary is correct and complete.

Revised List of Exemptions and Effect on State Plans
As of January 2015, a final rule created a new list of industries that are partially exempt from keeping OSHA records. The rule maintains the exemption for any employer with 10 or fewer employees—regardless of its industry classification—from the requirement to routinely keep records of worker injuries and illnesses.

However, please note that certain "state plan" states may not have formally adopted the new requirements yet. As such, establishments located in states that operate their own safety and health programs should check with their state plan for the implementation date of the requirements.
