This is a reminder, if applicable, to post your OSHA 300 Summary Sheet from February 1st to April 30th in an area where it is available to employees. If you have multiple locations a sheet with each location’s information must be posted at the location it pertains to.
OSHA’s Injury and Illness Recordkeeping rule (29 CFR 1904) requires covered workplaces to post a summary of recorded work-related injuries and illnesses from the previous year. This summary, OSHA 300A – Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, must be posted from February 1st through April 30th in a visible location so that employees are aware of the injuries and illnesses occurring in their workplace.
Form 300A is a summary of the entries from the previous year’s 300 Log. OSHA wants the information posted to keep employees aware of the occupational injuries and illnesses experienced in their workplace. The Summary also includes information about the average number of employees and the number of hours employees worked over the past year.
Remember to have a company executive certify the summary before it is posted. The certification is a signature by a company executive who is:
• An owner of the company (only if the company is a sole proprietorship or partnership);
• An officer of the corporation;
• The highest ranking company official working at the establishment; or the immediate supervisor of the highest ranking company official working at the establishment.
