Deadline approaches for posting OSHA 300A Summary
Posted January 20, 2023
At the end of each 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. Employers must post their OSHA 300A Summary from February 1 to April 30. It must be physically posted, in a place where employees are used to finding notices. During that time, employers must ensure that the Summary is not removed, altered, or defaced.
Note that employers must complete and post the Summary even if they had no recordable injuries or illnesses for the entire year.
Additionally, 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, 2023, through the agency’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA). OSHA began collecting the data for calendar year 2022 on January 2, 2023.
