EMPLOYERS MUST POST OSHA SUMMARY BY FEBRUARY 1ST

Employers must post OSHA's Form 300A - Summary of Job-Related Injuries and Illnesses by February 1, 2007. The Form 300A summarizes recordable workplace injuries and illnesses and should not be confused with the OSHA log or Form 300. The Form 300A must list the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during 2006 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. All summaries must be certified by a company executive and companies without any recordable injuries/illnesses should post the form with zeros in the total line. The Form 300A must be posted in a common area (wherever notices to employees are usually posted) and must remain posted until April 30, 2007. Employers must 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 are not required to keep OSHA injury and illness records for any establishment classified in the following Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes, unless they are asked in writing to do so by OSHA, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), or a state agency operating under the authority of OSHA or the BLS. All employers, including those partially exempted by reason of company size or industry classification, must report to OSHA any workplace incident that results in a fatality or the hospitalization of three or more employees.
