Get Ready to Post Your OSHA 300A by Feb. 1

Each February through April, employers with 11 or more employees must post a summary (OSHA 300A) of the injuries and illnesses recorded the previous year.

A company executive must certify that he or she has examined the OSHA 300 Log and that he or she reasonably believes, based on his or her knowledge of the process by which the information was recorded, that the annual summary is correct and complete.

The company executive who certifies the log must be one of the following persons: an owner of the company (only if the company is a sole proprietorship or partnership); an officer of the corporation; the highest ranking company official working at the establishment; or the immediate supervisor of the highest ranking company official working at the establishment.

OSHA records must be maintained at the worksite for at least five years.

Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives.
