Just a reminder that employers with over 10 employees are now required to have Form 300A prominently posted at the workplace from February until April. Form 300A is a summary of all workplace injuries and/or fatalities that business has sustained in the past year. It is required to be viewable by workers. Only certain low-risk industries are exempted from this requirement. Not surprisingly, construction-related businesses aren’t an exempted category!
OSHA’s Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements webpage includes links to Form 300A as well as instructions for completing it.
Other Important Worker Injury and Fatality Reporting Deadlines:
- 8 hours – The amount of time following a worker fatality the employer has to report the incident to OSHA
- 24 hours – The amount of time following a worker injury that results in an in-patient hospitalization, eye loss, or amputation.
- July 1, 2018 – By this date all employers with over 250 employees and employers in high-risk occupations like construction, and manufacturing with 20-249 employees must have their completed 300A forms submitted to OSHA.
