If you are required to prepare OSHA 300 and 300A forms, remember that you must post the 300A form between Feb. 1 and April 30, 2015, in an area where your employees can see it.
If your business never had more than 10 employees at any time during the last calendar year, you do not need to prepare OSHA 300 or 300A forms. Also, certain retail, service, finance, insurance, or real estate industries or organizations also do not need to prepare OSHA 300 or 300A forms.
For more information, see the Oregon OSHA fact sheet, Recording and posting work-related incidents.
