Deadline for posting OSHA 300A Summary approaching

Summary must be posted from February 1 to April 30

Posted January 7, 2022

At the end of every year, employers covered by OSHA’s workplace injury and illness recordkeeping requirements must review their 300 Log for accuracy and complete the 300A Summary based on the Log. The Summary must be physically posted, in a place where employees are used to finding notices, from February 1 to April 30. During that time, you must make sure that the Summary is not removed, altered, or defaced.

Note that you must complete and post the Summary even if you had no recordable injuries or illnesses for the entire year.

In addition, certain employers must submit the data from their 300A Summaries electronically to OSHA. Employers covered by this requirement include:

  • Establishments with 250 or more employees that are already keeping OSHA’s workplace injury and illness records; or
  • Establishments with 20-249 employees that are also listed as specific high-hazard industries in OSHA’s regulations.

Electronic submissions are due to OSHA by March 2, 2022, through the agency’s Injury Tracking Application. OSHA began collecting the data for calendar year 2021 on January 2, 2022.
