All employers with ten or more employees are required to keep an OSHA 300 Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and must post the previous year's log summary in a common work place today.

Work_Injuries-2.jpgThe summary (OSHA Form 300A) must be certified by an executive of the company and posted where employees customarily look for notices.  A summary of the previous year's log must be posted for each job site from Feb. 1 to April 30th, even if no incidents occurred.  Also, copies of the form should be provided to employees who do not regularly work on site.  Only the summary must be posted, but the log should be available to employees, or OSHA inspectors upon request.

Only serious injuries must be reported; a serious injury is one that results in a fatality, loss of consciousness, days away from work, a restricted work schedule or job transfer, or a significant injury or illness diagnosis by a health care provider, or one that requires medical treatment beyond basic first aid.  Employers should not report incidents that require merely basic first aid.  If an injury is of a sensitive nature, such as an assault, then "privacy case" should be written in the box for the employees name.

OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping Forms 300, 300A, 301, and instructions are available at
