We are reminding employers to post OSHA Form 300A from Feb. 1 to April 30, as required by law.
Form 300A, which lists a summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred last year, must be posted in a conspicuous place where it is visible to all of your employees.
The summary must include the number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2019 and were logged on OSHA Form 300, “Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses.”
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 your business recorded no injuries or illnesses in 2019, you must enter “zero” on the total line and still post the form, which 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.
Certain employers are exempt from the posting requirement, including:
- Small employers ― those with 10 or fewer employees at all times during the year.
- Employers in low-hazard industries ― see list of partially exempt industries at: (PDF).
If you don’t have copies of forms 300 and 300A, you can find them here.
