OSHA's Form 300 and 300A Requirements for Employers

By: Harold D. Park

Dear Employers,

As an important reminder, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires most employers to post a summary of work-related injuries and illnesses in their workplace starting on February 1 st. Additionally, employers must keep a log of work-related injuries and illnesses, which details the specific details about what happened and how it happened.

Here are some key points to take note of:

  • The Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300) must be kept for each establishment or site that is expected to be kept in operation for one year or more.
  • The Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300A) must be posted by February 1 of the year following the year covered by the form and kept posted until April 30 of that year.
  • The Log and Summary must be kept for 5 years following the year to which they pertain.
  • Employers do not have to send these forms to OSHA unless specifically asked to.
  • Employees have the right to review an employer's injury and illness records.

For more information, visit OSHA's website.
