February 1st Posting Requirement - Form 300A
Don Dressler Consulting and CalWorkSafety.com would like to
remind our clients that they must post the Form 300A summary of job-related injuries and illnesses from 2015 at their place of business no later than February 1, 2016.
This is a mandatory requirement of Cal/OSHA
Don't forget to post the Form 300A...Employers are required to post only the summary (Form 300A) - not the Form 300 (Log) - by February 1st and keep it posted until April 30.
- The summary must list the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in the previous year and were logged on the Form 300.
- Companies with no recordable injuries or illnesses in the previous year must post the summary with zeros on the "total" line. A company executive must certify all establishment summaries.
- The summary must be displayed in a common area where notices to employees usually are posted. Employers must make a copy of the summary available to employees who move from worksite-to-worksite, such as construction workers, and employees who do not report to any fixed establishment on a regular basis.
Which Employers Must Track Injuries and Illnesses?
- Nonexempt employers with more than 10 employees must track injuries and illnesses and post the form.
- Certain low-hazard industries are exempt. Businesses that employ 10 or fewer workers or those that fall into an exempt category must also record injuries if they are required to by OSHA or the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics for survey purposes.
- Only the summary must be posted; the log does not have to be displayed but must be available to employees, their representatives or OSHA inspectors.
- Companies with multiple jobsites should keep a separate log and summary for each location that is expected to be operational for at least a year
