Needs to be posted through April 30, 2019
Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses (Certain low-risk industries are exempted). Minor injuries requiring first aid only do not need to be recorded. This information helps employers, workers and OSHA evaluate the safety of a workplace, understand industry hazards, and implement worker protections to reduce and eliminate hazards; preventing future workplace injuries and illnesses.
MAINTAINING & POSTING REQUIREMENTS
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, OSHA Form 300A.
Employers with 250 or more employees (except for those in exempt industries) and employers with 20-249 employees in certain high-risk industries are required to electronically submit their OSHA Form 300A to OSHA. You can download the forms and instructions for completing the forms on the OSHA website here. March 2, 2019, is the deadline for electronically reporting your OSHA Form 300A data for calendar year 2018.
OSHA can cite and fine a covered employer who fails to properly complete and post OSHA Form 300A.
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.
