OSHA requires employers to post their 300A Forms beginning February 1st through April 30th. Certain employers who must submit electronic submissions must do so by March 2nd. So, don’t wait until last minute!
Recordkeeping is a crucial task that employers must perform to keep track of work place injuries. Employers must fill out the log only if a recordable work-related injury has occurred. Not only is it required by OSHA, but it also brings awareness to trends of injuries in a workplace.
Here is a list of the forms that must be maintained:
· Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300)
· Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300A)
· Injury and Illness Report (OSHA Form 301)
Reminder: All work-related fatalities must be reported to OSHA within 8 hours of the incident. All work-related inpatient hospitalizations, all amputations, and all losses of an eye must be reported to OSHA within 24 hours of the incident. If you are apart of an OSHA state plan, make sure you know your state requirements.
