Starting Feb. 1 each year, many U.S. employers are required to post a summary of the number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in the workplace the previous year. The posting must typically stay up until April 30. It’s wise to get in compliance, as OSHA in the past year has increased the number and severity of citations involving its record-keeping standard.
Your organization can skip this requirement only if it employs 10 or fewer workers or it’s in a low-hazard industry cited by OSHA. For a copy of the OSHA 300 reporting log and a complete list of exempt industries (by SIC code), see OSHA Injury and Illness Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements.
