Annual Summary posting period lasts for two more weeks

Posting cannot be covered or removed until April 30

Posted April 16, 2018

Employers who are required to track workplace injuries and illnesses using the OSHA 300 Log, 300-A Summary, and 301 Incident Reports must post a paper copy of the 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.
