OSHA POSTING DEADLINE APPROACHES
Covered employers must post their OSHA Form 300A also known as the Summary of Job-Related Injuries & Illnesses on or before February 1, 2009. The Form 300A summarizes recordable workplace injuries and illnesses from the OSHA Form 300, also known as the OSHA Log.
The Occupational Safety & Health Act (OSH Act) requires covered employers to prepare and maintain an OSHA Log of occupational injuries and illnesses. Employers with more than 10 employees that are not partially exempt must comply.
The OSHA Form 300A summarizes a worksite's injuries and illnesses for the calendar year. Additional information regarding the average number of employees and the total hours worked is also required. Businesses that do not have any recordable injuries or illnesses for the year should post a form with zeros. The Form 300A must also be certified by a company executive.
The Form 300A must be posted in a common area (wherever notices to employees are usually posted) until April 30, 2009. A copy of the Form 300A must also be made available to employees that may move from site to site or do not report to a fixed establishment on a regular basis.
For a copy of the required OSHA forms and a list of partially exempt industries, please visit the Forms & Notices Section of TXANS website.
Sample program, checklists and articles to support your workplace safety program are also available in TXANS Member Resource Center.
TXANS 2009 Nonsubscriber Conference & Exhibition will also feature a Learning Lab on the most frequently cited OSHA violations. A representative from OSHA will be on hand to discuss each violation and what steps an employer can take to avoid being cited.
