Yes, it’s time for our annual reminder that employers need to post Form 300A, your 2019 summary of work-related injuries and illnesses in the workplace, by February 1st.

OSHA’s Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements.

Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses.

Why? This information helps employers, workers and OSHA evaluate the safety of a workplace, understand industry hazards and implement worker protections that will help prevent future workplace injuries and illnesses.

According to the requirement,

  • Records must be maintained at the worksite for at least five years
  • You must prominently display Form 300A from February 1st through the end of April.
  • Certain employers are required to submit to OSHA the information from their completed Form 300A by March 2nd of the year after the calendar year covered by the form
  • Employers must report any worker fatality within 8 hours and any amputation, loss of an eye, or hospitalization of a worker within 24 hours.
