Remember to Post OSHA Form 300A Before April 30, 2016
Emplicity reminds employers to post OSHA Form 300A, which lists a summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during 2015. The form must be posted between February 1, 2016 and April 30, 2016. The summary must include the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2015 and were logged on OSHA Form 300, Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. To assist in calculating incidence rates, information about the annual average number of employees and total hours worked during the calendar year is also required. If a company recorded no injuries or illnesses in 2015, the employer must enter "zero" on the total line. The form must be signed and certified by a company executive. Form 300A should be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted. Employers with 10 or fewer employees and employers in certain industries are normally exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness record-keeping and posting requirements. A complete list of exempt industries in the retail, services, finance, insurance and real estate sectors can be found here. Copies of OSHA Forms 300 and 300A are available in either Adobe PDF or Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet format.
