Its that time of year again. Time to get your OSHA 300A Summary of accidents and injuries posted in a prominent location (near your posters will work) and leave that summary up on the wall until the end of April. The OSHA 300 is the log of injuries and illnesses (work related) and is summarized on the OSHA 300A. You should have 5 years of OSHA 300 forms in your files. This is a very convenient time for many of us to look back to make sure these forms are complete
Missing or incomplete OSHA 300’s is one of the most common citations OSHA writes and is one of the easiest to comply with. Even if you have no accidents in a calendar year, you still need to have a form with zeros where appropriate and properly signed. Please take a few minutes to review your OSHA 300’s and summarize this year’s injuries and illnesses and post the summary on the wall.
OSHA has a lot more information on their website at www.osha.gov/recordkeeping .
Give us a call if you have any questions. There are also a number of other resources found online that have much more information than can be listed in a short blog post.
