Time to Post OSHA 300A Injury and Illness Log

02.01.12

Covered employers must post OSHA Form 300A Injury and Illness summaries where notices are customarily posted beginning today (February 1) through April 30, 2012. An injury or illness is considered work-related if an event in the workplace caused or contributed to the condition. Note that some employers are exempt from this posting requirement. Employers are exempt if they employ 10 or fewer employees. Those employees are listed on OSHA’s website:  www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/ppt1/RK1exempttable.html

Form 300A is the OSHA log of work-related illnesses and injuries and is used to track each recordable injury or illness that occurred in the previous year. Employers must keep an OSHA log for each work site. An employer with more than one worksite must keep a separate OSHA log and annual summary for each location. Employers must make a copy of the summary available to employees without a fixed worksite.

You can download a copy of Form 300A at www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/RKforms.html.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
