Cal/OSHA Reminds Employers to Post 2018 Injury and Illness Summaries

Summaries of work-related injuries and illnesses must be posted each year from February 1 through April 30, even if no workplace injuries occurred during the prior year.

Cal/OSHA posted a reminder Feb. 1 telling employers in California they are required to post their 2018 annual summaries of work-related injuries and illnesses. The summaries must be posted each year from February 1 through April 30, even if no workplace injuries occurred during the prior year.

The same requirement applies where federal OSHA has jurisdiction -- covered employers are to post their 300A summary starting Feb. 1.

Instructions and form templates can be downloaded for free from Cal/OSHA's Record Keeping Overview, which gives instructions on completing both the log (Form 300) and the annual summary (Form 300A) of work-related injuries and illnesses. The annual summary must be placed in a visible and easily accessible area at each work site, and both current and former employees, as well as employee representatives, must be allowed to review the summary in its entirety.

The definitions and requirements for recordable work-related fatalities, injuries, and illnesses are outlined in the California Code of Regulations, Title 8, sections 14300 through 14300.48.
