The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers subject to its record keeping requirements to post copies of their OSHA Form 300A between February 1 and April 30 of each year.

The OSHA Form 300A, also known as the “Summary of Work-related Injuries and Illnesses,” must be completed by February 1 using data from the previous calendar year.

As a reminder, OSHA’s record-keeping requirement does not apply to employers with 10 or fewer employees, or to employers that are in a partially exempt industry.

Employer Action Steps

  • On February 1, employers subject to OSHA recordkeeping requirements must ensure that copies of their completed Forms 300A are posted in each of their establishments. The form must be displayed in a conspicuous place or places where notices to employees are customarily posted.
  • Until April 30, these employers must also ensure that their Form 300A postings remain in place and are not altered, defaced or covered by other material.
  • Employers should retain their OSHA 300 log, the privacy case list (if one exists), the annual summary and the OSHA 301 incident report forms for five years following the end of the calendar year that these records cover.
