Just so the date doesn’t get away from you … OSHA Form 300A, Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, must be displayed from February 1, 2011, through April 30, 2011. The form summarizes the number of on-the-job injuries and illnesses for the calendar year, as logged on the OSHA Form 300.
It should be posted in a conspicuous place by February 1 and remain on view through April 30 – in a location where it can’t be altered, defaced or covered by other posted material.
A few things to keep in mind:
=> Even if there weren’t any recordable injuries or illnesses in 2010, you must post the form with zeros on the “TOTAL” line.
=> Copies should be made available to any employee who might not see the summary (a remote employee who works from home, for example).
=> You’ll need certain employment information, such as the annual average number of employees and total hours worked in the calendar year, to determine incidence rates.
=> You should post separate summaries for each work site.
=> Your business is exempt if you employ fewer than 10 workers (and had no fatalities).
=> The form must be filled out and certified by a company executive as correct and complete.
