Reminder: OSHA Form 300A Posting Requirements Started February 1, 2021

  • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), requires employers subject to its recordkeeping requirements, to post copies of their OSHA Form 300A, also known as the “Summary of Work-related Injuries & Illnesses” between February 1 and April 30 each year, using data from the previous calendar year.

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

  • The form must be displayed in a conspicuous place or places where notices to employees are customarily posted.  Until April 30th, these employers must also ensure that their Form 300A posting remain in place and are not altered, defaced or covered by other material.

  • Due to the fact that many employees are working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, OSHA will not require employers to display the OSHA 300A form in establishments that are completely empty.  However, employers will need to comply with the posting requirement if employees return to the establishment before May 1, 2021.

  • Retain OSHA 300 log for five years following the calendar year to which it relates.

  • If no cases are recorded during a reporting period, a summary must still be posted.  Zeroes should be entered into all spaces provided on Form 300A.
