ABC is reminding its contractor member firms that their 2015 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 list the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2015 and were logged on the employer's OSHA Form 300A must be certified by a company executive and displayed on an area where notices to employees are typically posted. Employment information about the average number of employees and total hours worked during the calendar year is also required. Companies with no recorded injuries or illnesses in 2015 must still post the form, with zeros on the total line.

Employers with 10 or fewer employees and employers in specific low-hazard industries are normally exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness record-keeping and posting requirements. Due to changes in OSHA's record-keeping requirements that went into effect Jan. 1, 2015, certain previously exempt industries are now covered. Lists of both exempt and newly covered industries are available on OSHA's website. Visit OSHA's Record-keeping Rule webpage for more information on record-keeping requirements.
