Important OSHA Reporting Requirement Due Feb. 1, 2016

Authored by Adam D. Hirtz

On Feb. 1, 2016, employers (with extremely few exceptions) must post OSHA’s Form 300A summarizing the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses logged during 2015. Employers must display Form 300A in a “common area,” such as a break room or widely used hallway where they post other employee notices. Importantly, OSHA requires employers to post Form 300A from February 1 through April 30.

As a reminder, OSHA updated its reporting requirements effective last January, and now many employers are covered that were not previously. Since OSHA has significantly increased enforcement in the past couple of years, employers can expect OSHA to take a strict approach to its reporting requirements.

OSHA’s website contains helpful information about Form 300A, its other reporting requirements, and covered employers. If you are not sure if OSHA’s reporting requirements apply to your organization, or if you have questions about the requirements, do not hesitate to contact Lowenbaum Law.
