OSHA Form 300A Is Your Annual Safety Scorecard

12 Jan

All employers with more than 10 employees, with minor exceptions, must keep records of work related injuries. Once a year, from February 1 through April 30, the results of these injuries must be posted at each work location on OSHA Form 300A.
This requirement is an opportunity for employers to measure the effectiveness of their safety program, learn what is working well, and improve.
In California, we call the form Cal/OSHA Form 300A, “Work Related Injuries and Illnesses Summary”. It has really useful information – so don’t just fill it out, post it and forget it. Put the information to use to make your company and your employees safe and safe money as well
You should know that if Cal/OSHA conducts an inspection of your facility, the OSHA inspectors “must obtain copies of the employer’s current 300 report and for the prior three years”. Failure to maintain or produce these reports will lead to an OSHA citation.
You can obtain a copy of the form from Cal/OSHA at: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dosh/doshreg/apndxb300afinal.pdf
For help in completing the OSHA Form 300 A or other reports, just email DonDressler1@hotmail.com.
