All establishments covered by OSHA’s Part 1904 are required to complete Form 300A, Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, on an annual basis.

This form summarizes the number of recordable work-related injury and illness cases, the number of days work was affected, and the types of injuries and illnesses.  Information about the company, including the average number of employees and total hours worked by all employees must also be recorded.  Form 300A must be posted from February 1 through April 30 of the year following the year covered by the OSHA 300 log.  Even if no recordable incidents or illnesses occurred during the previous year, the 300A form must be completed and posted reflecting zeros.  While going through this process, also take the time to review the incidents on the OSHA 300 log to ensure they have been recorded properly.

If you have not started completing this form already, be sure to get started so you have sufficient time to gather all the necessary information before February 1st!

Detailed guidance on how to complete this form is available from OSHA.  This should be referenced for questions and used if this is your first time completing the form.
