State and federal OSHA regulations require that employers with 11 or more employees at any time in 2017 must post the Annual Summary of Injuries and Illnesses from February 1 to April 30. This form lists summary data for all job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during the calendar year 2017. Businesses with no injuries or illnesses for the year must still post the form.
Employers subject to these regulations should review their Form 300 to verify that:
- All recordable injuries and illnesses are listed
- All entries are complete and accurate
- Correct any discrepancies
Record work-related injuries or illnesses that result in death, loss of consciousness, days away from work, restricted work activity or job transfer, or medical treatment beyond first aid. Other incidents that are significant, as defined by OSHA, must also be recorded.
Use Form 300A to report a summary of these injuries and illnesses, have a company officer sign the form, and then post it from February 1 to April 30. Note that you only have to post the summary, not the entire log.
