OSHA Recordkeeping—Posting the Annual Summary

Employers subject to OSHA-recordkeeping standards must complete and post the annual Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300A) for 2013 for each establishment from February 1 through April 30, 2014.

Employers in non-exempt industries who employed more than 10 employees at any time during the previous calendar year are required to keep records for the current calendar year. Click here to see a list of employers who are exempt from these requirements based on type of industry.

Covered employers should start by reviewing the OSHA Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300) for the relevant establishment and determining whether it is accurate and complete. The information from the log (OSHA Form 300) will be used to complete the annual summary (OSHA Form 300A), along with general information and employment information about that establishment. Once the annual summary is complete, the person or persons who prepared the log and summary and a company executive must certify that the information provided is both true and complete.

The employer must then post the summary in a conspicuous place where notices are customarily posted. Click here to access the recordkeeping forms.
