For compliance with OSHA Recordkeeping requirements, employers with 10 or more employees in the previous calendar year are obligated to post a copy of OSHA’s Form 300A, which summarizes job-related injuries and illnesses logged during 2015. The summary must be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted each year between Feb. 1 and April 30.
Establishments with less than 10 employees in the previous calendar year and those in certain low-hazard industries are partially exempt from routinely keeping OSHA injury and illness records. Due to changes in OSHA’s recordkeeping requirements that went into effect Jan. 1, 2015, certain previously exempt industries are now covered. See the lists of both exempt and newly covered industries for details.
Under the Jan. 1, 2015 updates, employers are required to use the Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300), the Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300A), and the Injury and Illness Incident Report (OSHA Form 301). You must fill out the Log and the Incident Report only if a recordable work-related injury or illness has occurred. Forms can be accessed here.
