Post Your OSHA Form 300A Summary

Employers with 11 or more employees are required to post their 2019 OSHA Form 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses from February 1 to April 30 of the year following the year covered by the summary. The 300A Summary or an equivalent must be completed even if there were no work-related injuries or illnesses recorded during the calendar year.  The summary 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 along with the Form 300 Log and 301 Incident Reports for a period of five years following the year to which it pertains.   

The OSHA regulations also require employers to review its log for accuracy and update it if necessary, summarize the data from the 300 Log, and have a company executive (i.e., an owner, officer, or highest ranking company official working at the establishment or that person’s immediate supervisor) certify that the information on the form is complete and accurate.

Members are also reminded to post their 300A summary to the Fed-OSHA portal by March 2, 2020.
