Deadline for posting injuries looming

Deadline for posting injuries looming

Employers are required to post their annual OSHA injury and illness summary by Feb. 1 every year. And this year's deadline is fast approaching.  OSHA requires that form 300A be completed and posted in a common area that employees can access where other notices are posted.  The form must remain up through April 30.

Posting requirements
The posted log must include any on-the-job injuries or illnesses that resulted in:
• death
• days away from work
• restricted work or transfer to another position
• diagnosis of a significant injury or illness by a healthcare professional
• loss of consciousness, or
• medical treatment (beyond first aid).

Employers are required to keep and post a log for each separate facility.  Additionally, the summary must be certified by a company executive.  For injuries and illnesses with privacy concerns, companies should not report the name of the employee.  Examples include injury to the reproductive system or needlesticks. In these situations, managers should write "privacy case" on the form.
