Remember to Post OSHA Form 300A
Most employers are required under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (the "Act") to record job-related injuries and illnesses during each calendar year on OSHA Form 300 – Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses . (Employers exempt from this recordkeeping requirement are those with 10 or fewer employees and employers in certain industries in the retail, services, finance, insurance and real estate sectors). Between February 1 and April 30, 2013, employers are required to post OSHA Form 300A in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted. Included on OSHA Form 300A is a summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during 2012 and which were recorded on OSHA Form 300.
