Reminder: Post Your OSHA 300A Recordkeeping Summary by March 2

February 11, 2020

Employers identified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) are required to submit data on Form 300A annually. OSHA’s recordkeeping standard necessitates that even employers with no recordable injuries or illnesses must post the summary in the same location as routine employee notices. The federal agency’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA) online portal must be used to file injury and illness reports electronically.

California employers should electronically submit form 300A data covering the 2019 calendar year by March 2. Find more information about reporting requirements from Cal/OSHA.

Record all work-related injuries and illnesses that result in:

  • Death
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Days away from work
  • Modified work or job transfer
  • Medical treatment beyond first aid

Remember to:

  • Record injuries on the OSHA 300 log within seven days of occurrence.
  • Maintain a separate log and summary for each site.
  • Post only the summary, not the log.
  • Complete the log and post the summary even when no recordable injuries or illnesses occur.
  • Retain the log and summary for five years.
  • Only send completed forms to OSHA if specifically asked to do so.

Form 300A logs are critical for employer, worker and OSHA evaluation of industry and workplace safety.
