EMPLOYERS MUST POST OSHA ANNUAL SUMMARY BY FEBRUARY 1ST
Employers must post OSHA's Summary of Job-Related Injuries and Illnesses-OSHA Form 300A (not the OSHA log-OSHA Form 300) regarding injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2005 by February 1, 2006.
The summary must list the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during 2005 and were logged on the OSHA Form 300. Information regarding the average number of employees and the total hours worked during the calendar year is also required to assist in calculating incident rates. Companies with no recordable injuries or illnesses should post the Form 300A with zeros reflected in the total line. All summaries must also be certified by a company executive.
The Form 300A must be posted in the workplace, in a common area (wherever notices to employees are usually posted) and should remain posted until April 30, 2006. Employers must also make a copy of the Form 300A available to employees who move from work site to work site, such as construction workers and employees that do not report to a fixed establishment on a regular basis.
Employers from certain industry groups and businesses that employ ten or fewer employees may be exempt from OSHA record keeping and posting requirements. Additional information concerning OSHA compliance, including a list of record keeping exemptions will be available to TXANS' Members and Suppliers in the February 2006 issue of TXANS News.
