Oregon OSHA Construction Depot Safety and health newsletter for the Oregon construction industry

February 16, 2017

It's February. Do you know where your OSHA 300-A summary is?

Don't forget to post a copy of your OSHA 300-A, which summarizes your company's job-related injuries and illnesses logged during 2016. The summary must be displayed each year between Feb. 1 and April 30 in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted. Businesses with 10 or fewer employees at any time during 2016 and businesses in certain low-hazard industries are exempt from the requirements.

The highest-ranking manager at the location where the log was compiled must sign and date the document. If there is no manager at that location, the manager with control over that location must sign and date it.

Forms and instructions are in this publication: OSHA Forms for Recording Work-related Injuries and Illnesses. It takes time to record an injury or illness, so the fewer injuries or illnesses you have, the less time you will have to spend doing paperwork.
