Most employers are required to complete OSHA’s Form 300A and post the “Summary” page from February 1 to April 30 of the year following the year covered by the “Summary.” It must be displayed in a conspicuous location where notices to employees are customarily posted.
A copy of the “Summary” must also be made available to employees who move from worksite to worksite and employees who do not report to any fixed establishment on a regular basis. At the end of the three-month period, the “Summary” should be taken down and kept on file for a period of five years following the year to which it pertains.
The law requires that the log must be completed even if there were no recordable injuries or illnesses during the year. In such cases, employers are required to post the summary with zero (0) appearing on the total line.
Businesses with 10 or fewer employees are exempt from the requirement unless there was an employee fatality, hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye. In addition, certain industries are partially exempt. View: List of partially exempt industries.
