This is a reminder that from February 1 through April 30, 2018, impacted employers are required to post a copy of their 2017 Form 300A (Summary of Work-Related Illnesses and Injuries) in a common area where employee notices are usually available.
This annual requirement may not apply to certain employers that are partially exempt from routinely keeping Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) injury and illness reports. Partially exempt employers are those:
- With 10 or fewer employees at all times during the previous calendar year; or
- In certain low-hazard industries.
Partially exempt employers may have to maintain illness and injury reports at the request of OSHA, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), or a state agency operating under the authority of OSHA or the BLS. Additionally, pursuant to 29 CFR § 1904.39, all employers, even those that are partially exempt, must report to OSHA any workplace incident that results in a fatality, in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye.
