As of February 1st employers must post a summary of the previous year totals of job-related injuries and illnesses. Only the summary (OSHA Form 300A) is required. Employers should list the total number of incidents occurring in 2009 that were logged on the 300 form. Employers must also post the annual average number of employees and total hours worked during the year (to assist in calculating incidence rates).
The form is to be posted in an area easily accessible to all employees. The report must also be available to employees who move from worksite to worksite (ie; construction workers, and employees who don’t report to a fixed establishment regularly).
Employers with ten or less employees in certain industries may be exempt from OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping and postings. A complete list of exempt industries is posted on OSHA’s website.
