OSHA Reminds Employers to Post Injury/Illness Summaries

OSHA is reminding employers that beginning today until April 30, 2008, they must post OSHA Form 300A, a summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during 2007.

"The OSHA 300 logs provide employers and employees a broad view of where injuries and illnesses are occurring at their worksites," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. "Identifying and posting injury and illness information provides employers and employees with useful information to help ensure a more safe and healthful workplace."

The summary must include the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2007 and were logged on the OSHA Form 300. To assist in calculating incidence rates, information about the annual average number of employees and total hours worked during the calendar year is also required. If a company recorded no injuries or illnesses in 2007, the employer must enter "zero" on the total line. The form must be signed and certified by a company executive and must be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted.

Employers with 10 or fewer employees and employers in certain industries are normally exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping and posting requirements. A complete list of exempt industries in the retail, services, finance, insurance, and real estate sectors is posted on the OSHA Web site, www.osha.gov.

Copies of OSHA Forms 300 and 300A are available in either Adobe PDF or Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet format on the OSHA Recordkeeping Web site at www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/index.html.
