OSHA Log Form 300A Posting Due February 1, 2011.

OSHA 300A Log Form
Section 1904 of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations requires certain employers to comply with the OSHA recordkeeping guidelines (this includes most employers, see http://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/ppt1/RK1exempttable.html for a list of partially exempt industries).  This regulation requires OSHA form 301 to be completed for each work related injury/illness.  The information  from the 301 form is logged onto the OSHA 300 form.  At the end of calendar year 2010, the totals from OSHA 300 form is entered onto the OSHA 300A form.  The 300A form is the total number of cases (injuries/illnesses), total number of work days lost (due to injuries/illnesses), and total number of injury/illness types from the calendar year 2010 for each facility/work site/employer.  The OSHA 300A form must be posted from February 1, 2011 thru April 30, 2011.  The 300A form should be posted in a conspicuous place where you normally post employee information. Failure to post can result in citations and penalties.  You are required to maintain the OSHA 300 and 300A forms for 5 years following the year they pertain and make them available to employees upon request.  To get the forms mentioned above and instructions on how to complete then visit OSHA's website at http://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/new-osha300form1-1-04.pdf.  For more information on recordkeeping requirements visit OSHA's website on recordkeeping at http://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/index.html.  If you need assistance or training on completing these forms you can also contact us at angelo3@futureenv.com
