ABC is reminding its contractor member firms that 2013 Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Form 300A work-related injury and illness log summaries must be posted in a visible spot on all construction sites Feb. 1 through April 30.
The summaries, which are an annual OSHA requirement, list the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2013 and were logged on the employer's OSHA Form 300. Employment information about the average number of employees and total hours worked during the calendar year is also required. Companies with no recordable injuries or illnesses in 2013 must still post the form, with zeros on the total line.
All summaries must be certified by a company executive and displayed in a common area where notices to employees are typically posted. Employers with 10 or fewer employees or those in certain industries may be exempt from OSHA recordkeeping requirements; click here
