We wanted to make sure you knew that on February 1st, employers subject to the recordkeeping requirements of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) were reminded to post their 2017 OSHA Form 300A, Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, from February 1 – April 30, 2018.
OSHA 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. In addition, a company executive must certify that he or she has examined the employer’s OSHA Form 300, Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, and that he or she reasonably believes—based on his or her knowledge of the process by which the information was recorded—that the OSHA Form 300A is correct and complete.
