Between Feb. 1 and April 30, many U.S. employers must post a summary of the number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in their workplace last year. Your organization can skip that requirement only if it employs 10 or fewer workers or it's in a low-hazard industry cited by OSHA. For a complete list of exempt industries (by SIC code), go to www.osha.gov/recordkeeping and click on "Partially Exempt Industries."
If you must post this information, take note: You're required to post only the summary form (OSHA Form 300A), not the complete Form 300 injury/illness log. Also, you must keep the form posted until April 30. Prior to last year, you only had to post the form during February.
