EHS Management, Injuries and Illness

Remember to Post Your 300A Injury, Illness Summary by February 1!

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) recordkeeping rule, employers that are required to keep and maintain an OSHA injury and illness 300 log must post their 300A annual summary in each establishment where employee notices are normally posted from February 1 to April 30. The 300A form summarizes the recordable work-related injuries and illnesses in 2017.

After the end of the year, employers must review the 300 log to verify its accuracy, summarize the 300 log information on the 300A summary form, and certify the summary (a company executive must sign the certification).

Employers with 10 or fewer employees or those listed in certain low-hazard industries are not required to post the 300A annual summary.

Employers required to electronically submit their 300A data by July 1, 2018, are also required to post the 300A summary where employee notices are normally posted from February 1 to April 30.
