Employers reminded to post injury and illness summaries through April; electronic filing not required until July
OSHA reminds employers of their obligation to post a copy of OSHA's Form 300A, which summarizes job-related injuries and illnesses logged during 2016. The summary must be displayed from February through April in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted.
Businesses with 10 or fewer employees and those in certain low-hazard industries are exempt from OSHA recordkeeping and posting requirements. Under a new rule, many of the same employers will be required to electronically submit the 2016 data to OSHA by July 1, 2017.
A page for submitting records electronically will soon be available. Visit OSHA's Recordkeeping webpage for more information on recordkeeping requirements.
