Federal Law Alert: OSHA 300A Forms Must be Posted by February 1

by Mammoth Team on January 25, 2017


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) mandates that all employers who are required to maintain the OSHA 300 Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses post a summary of the previous year’s log between February 1st and April 30th each year, even if no incidents occurred in the preceding calendar year.

The summary (OSHA Form 300A) must be certified by a company executive and posted in a conspicuous location where notices to employees are customarily posted.

All employers who had more than ten employees at any point during the last calendar year are covered by this requirement unless they qualify as part of an exempt low-risk industry. 

New this year: electronic reporting begins. The OSHA 300A form will need to be submitted online to OSHA by July 1. We will publish a reminder closer to this deadline with instructions for submitting the form online as OSHA has not yet released full details of this procedure.
