Q. What information must be included in an OSHA Log 300 and when must it be posted?
A. OSHA requires employers with 11 or more workers to maintain a log of “recordable occupational injuries” on OSHA Form 300. Each year, from Feb. 1 to April 30, employers must post the information regarding workplace injuries and illnesses that occurred in the previous year.
The “recordable occupational injuries” that must be reported (and posted) include:
- Fatalities, without regard to the time between the injury and death or the length of the illness
- Injuries (other than fatalities) that result in the loss of workdays
- Nonfatal cases without lost workdays that result in transfer to another job or termination of employment, or that require medical treatment or involve a loss of consciousness or restriction of worker motion.
An injury is considered to involve a “lost workday” if the employee is not able to perform his or her normal work during any part of a shift occurring on a day other than the day the injury occurred.
