OSHA requires businesses to record work-related injuries and illnesses. Some businesses are required to report this information to OSHA as well. The OSHA 300A Summary form must be posted and accessible to all employees on Feb. 1st, 2019.
Please contact HRinDemand if you would like assistance with the processing of your OSHA 300 Log.
Which Businesses Need To File
- Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. (Certain low-risk industries are exempted.)
- Medium Sized companies with 50 – 249 employees, and a certain classification must file the OSHA Log 300A Log before midnight on Feb. 1st, 2019 to stay compliant. See the classification list.
- All Large Companies with 250+ employees must file both the OSHA 300A and 300 Log before midnight on Feb. 1st, 2019 to stay compliant.
- Moving forward, all required companies will file form 301.
Which Businesses are Exempt
Some employers may be exempt from OSHA’s recordkeeping rules, for example, those with 10 or fewer employees during the previous calendar year and those classified in specific industries. If you are unsure whether your company or business is covered by the requirements, please see, OSHA’s website for regulations.
Participating businesses must keep records at the worksite for five years. Each spring, employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year from February 1 to April 30. Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees.
More information is provided on OSHA’s website.
