The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is reminding employers of their obligation to post a copy of OSHA’s Form 300A, which summarizes job-related injuries and illnesses logged during 2016.

According to OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule, covered employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. A summary of those injuries and illnesses must be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted each year between Feb. 1 and April 30. Businesses with 10 or fewer employees and those in certain low-hazard industries are exempt from OSHA recordkeeping and posting requirements.

Employers must maintain the records of injuries and illnesses at the worksite for at least five years. Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives.
