CAI reminds members that the OSHA 300A must be posted in a conspicuous place at their worksite from 2/1/15 through 4/30/15. A company executive (an officer of the corporation, or the highest ranking official at the establishment or his/her immediate supervisor) must sign the summary, certifying to its accuracy. A sample OSHA Form 300A can be found here.
The OSHA 300A is the summary of injuries and illnesses taken from the OSHA Log 300 that is maintained during the year. Employers with 10 or fewer employees and certain employers in low hazard industries, although covered by OSHA regulations, are exempt from OSHA recordkeeping and reporting on OSHA forms 300, 301 and 300A. These industries, however, may be contacted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) to participate in a mandated survey requiring them to report injury and illness data. Partially-exempt employers are also required to report:
- Work-related employee fatalities within eight hours; and
- The hospitalization of one or more employees, a work-related amputation and a work-related loss of an eye within 24 hours.
Those incidents should be reported by calling 919‑779-8560 or the toll-free 1‑800‑625‑2267.
