Q&A OSHA 300

QUESTION: Can you fill us in on the annual OSHA 300 reporting required each year.

ANSWER: The OSHA 300 and 300A logs. OSHA requires employers to report workplace injuries and illnesses unless it is in a low-risk industry or it has 10 or fewer employees. 

If the standard applies, the employer needs to use Form 300 to record the details of injuries and illnesses throughout the calendar year. From Feb. 1 to April 30, the employer is required to post Form 300A, which summarizes injury and illness information from the past year, in a place that is accessible to employees.

The records must be maintained at the worksite for at least five years. Each February through April, employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year. Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives.

Severe Injury Reporting

Employers must report any worker fatality within 8 hours and any amputation, loss of an eye, or hospitalization of a worker within 24 hours.
