Reminder! OSHA Log Posting Deadline February 1st!
It's almost that time again! OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) requires that beginning Feb. 1 of each year, covered employers with 10 or more employees must post the OSHA-required Form 300A, which summarizes an employer's reportable injuries and illnesses for the prior year.
The OSHA Form 300-A posting period is Feb. 1- April 30. An employer subject to this requirement must post the OSHA Form 300-A, even if the employer had no reportable injuries/illnesses in the prior year. In addition, employees with no fixed work site or no access to posted sites must be provided with a copy of the report. Click here to download forms and instructions.
Also, under OSHA regulation 1904.31(b)(2), if a company obtains employees from a temporary help service, employee leasing service, or personnel supply service, the company, not the agency, must record any injuries and illnesses if you supervise these employees on a day-to-day basis.

Separate from the OSHA log posting requirement, some covered employers also have an electronic recordkeeping requirement.
