OSHA Form 300A Posting Period to Commence Feb. 1


Employers with more than ten employees and whose establishments are not classified as a partially exempt industry must record work-related injuries and illnesses using OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301.

From Februay through April, these covered employers are required to post OSHA Form 300A, which summarizes the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during 2014 and were logged on OSHA’s Form 300 (the log of work-related injuries and illnesses). The summary must be posted between Feb. 1 and April 30, 2015, and should be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted.

Employers with 10 or fewer employees and employers in specific low-hazard industries, such as retail, service, finance, insurance, and real estate industries, are normally exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping and posting requirements. Due to recent changes in OSHA’s recordkeeping requirements, however, certain previously exempt industries are now covered. Newly covered industries are listed here.
