Cal/OSHA Annual Summary (Form 300A) Posting Date Is February 1- Are You Ready?

20 Jan

From February 1 through April 30 of each year, most employers are required by the OSHA Record keeping Standard to post a summary of the prior year’s job-related injuries, even if there were none. In California, Cal/OSHA’s rules apply.

Included in the log (known as Form 300A) should be the total numbers of job-related injuries and illnesses from 2012 as well as information on the number of workers and hours worked for the year. A company executive must certify all establishment summaries.

The requirement applies to all employers that had 11 or more employees, except those covered in the California low-hazard establishments in the retail, service, finance and real estate sectors. Employers with 10 or fewer employees at all times during the last calendar year do not need to keep Cal/OSHA injury and illness records. 

Do be aware that the requirement to notify Cal/OSHA if an employee has a serious injury still applies to ALL employers. 

If there is more than one business establishment, a separate summary must be posted in each physical location that is expected to be in operation for one year or longer.
