It’s that time of year … deadline for posting OSHA 300A Summary approaching

Summary must be posted from February 1 through April 30

Posted January 11, 2019

Employers who are required to track workplace injuries and illnesses under 29 CFR 1904 must post a paper copy of the 300A Summary from February 1 through April 30.

The Summary, which covers the previous year’s recordable injuries and illnesses, must be posted in a prominent area where notices to employees are normally placed and must not be covered, altered, or defaced during that time. Note that the Summary must be posted even if an establishment had no recordable injuries during the previous year.

Checking to see that your Summary is posted is one of the first things an OSHA compliance officer will do during an inspection. Missing or covered Summaries could result in a civil penalty.

Don’t forget e-submission coming on March 2

Certain employers must also electronically submit information from their 300A data to OSHA. This requirement applies to establishments that are already keeping OSHA injury and illness records and have 250 or more employees or have 20-249 employees and are listed by NAICS code in Appendix A to Subpart E in Part 1904.

If the e-Submit requirement applies to you, you must submit your 2018 300A Summary data to OSHA by March 2, 2019, using the Injury Tracking Application on the OSHA website.
