The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is reminding employers that OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule requires that a copy of OSHA Form 300A, which summarizes job-related injuries and illnesses logged during 2017 must be on display between Feb. 1 and April 30. The summary must be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted.

Businesses with 10 or fewer employees and those in certain low-hazard industries are exempt from OSHA recordkeeping and posting requirements.

OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule requires covered employers with more than 10 employees to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. 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.
