Between Feb. 1 and April 30, post OSHA 300A injury/illness summary for 2019; submit electronically by March 2

Alabama Retail Comp would like to remind employers who are covered under OSHA recordkeeping requirements that it’s almost time to post OSHA’s Form 300A, the Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, for job-related illnesses or injuries that occurred during 2019.

Form 300A summarizes the total number of work-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during the past year and that were logged on OSHA’s Form 300. Covered employers are required to post the summary between Feb. 1 and April 30, 2020, and must include injuries and illnesses recorded on the OSHA 300 Log from Jan. 1, 2019, to Dec. 31, 2019.

The summary should be displayed in a common location where notices to employees or other workplace information is usually posted. Even if there were no recordable injuries or illnesses, you must still complete and post the 300A summary with zeros.

Establishments with 250 or more employees that are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records, and establishments with 20-249 employees that are classified in specific industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses are required to electronically submit their 300A forms to OSHA each year by March 2. You are no longer required to electronically submit Form 300 or 301, but all three forms 300, 300A and 301 must be kept on-site for inspections and enforcement.
