Reminder to Employers: February 1 Deadline to Post OSHA Form 300A  

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires certain covered employers to prepare and maintain records of workplace injuries and illnesses. By February 1, 2016, employers (with 10 or more employees) must post a summary (Form 300A) listing the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in the previous year and which were logged on the Form 300A. For organizations that did not have any recordable injuries or illnesses in 2015, you are still required to post the Form 300A summary, and simply indicate "zero" on the log. Certain low-hazard industries are exempt from OSHA's record keeping requirements based on their Standard Industry Classification code.

The Form 300A must be posted in a workplace common area where other workplace notices are typically posted, no later than February 1, 2016 and must remain posted until April 30, 2016.  Employers are further required make the summary available to employees who move from worksite to worksite and to employees who do not regularly report to a set establishment.

To discuss your specific organization or if you have any questions about the above, please call your firm contact at 818.508.3700, or visit us online at www.brgslaw.com.
