The HR Coffee Room by 1BC Consulting, Inc.
A quick reminder to all employers who are required to keep the Log of Work-Related Injury and Illness, better known as OSHA Form 300. You must begin posting Form 300-A by February 1, 2018. The Form 300-A contains the annual summary of job-related injuries and illnesses for your workplace. It is required that you post the Form 300-A in a common visible area all the way through April 30, 2018. Your summary of injuries for 2017, should include the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred at your company.
As required by The Department of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Form 300-A is utilized to report a business’s total number of missed workdays, restrictions, job transfers, injuries and illnesses and any fatalities, as recorded on Form 300. It is also required to report the total number of employees and the total hours they worked the previous year.
Even if you had no recordable injuries, or illnesses, which means your safety program and compliance is top-notch, your company is still required to complete Form 300-A, with zeroes on the appropriate lines and post it in a common visible area.
