OSHA has put a lot more emphasis on the tracking and recording of accidents and injuries. The obvious thought is that you can’t improve what you don’t measure. For years almost all employers have been required to keep track of their accidents and injuries via the OSHA 300 form. You should have 5 calendar years of OSHA 300 forms in your files. Additionally OSHA has now begun collecting the OSHA 300A information from nearly everyone that needs to keep a 300 form. The next electronic submission will be sometime this Summer.
The 300A summary of accidents and injuries are supposed to be posted each year beginning February 1 and they must stay up until April 30. It would be a good idea to make sure you have posted your 300A all filled out. This is required even if you didn’t have any accidents in the previous calendar year.
Doing it now and making sure its done right will make sure the electronic filing due later this year will be a piece of cake.
As always, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
