From February 1 to April 30, 2019, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers who are required to keep OSHA logs to post their OSHA summary (Form 300-A) during the required posting period for the 2018 calendar year. You may view the Partially Exempt Industries list here.
The summary log must be posted on premises where all employees and visitors can readily view the document. The summary log has been modified to omit certain information such as names of the injured employees and other personal information. If you have multiple locations, a copy must be posted at each location for injuries occurring at that location.
OSHA has instructions and forms on their website that you can access here.
You may also download the following documents:
- OSHA 300, 300-A and 301 Logs (Please note that all three forms are in multiple tabs within the same spreadsheet)
- OSHA 300A Annual Summary, Management Handout
Please remember that you can be fined for failing to post the OSHA log. The exemptions include retail, service, finance, real estate, schools and doctors and dental offices. See the California Standard Exemptions to the posting requirements for a complete description of exemptions.
300A Electronic Submission:
March 2, 2019, is the deadline for electronically reporting your OSHA Form 300A data for calendar year 2018. Collection will begin January 2, 2019.
Who must file electronically?
- Establishments with 250 or more employees.
- Establishments with 20 to 249 employees in high risk industries listed by NAICS codes
OSHA has published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to amend its recordkeeping regulation to remove the requirement to electronically submit to OSHA information from the OSHA Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and OSHA Form 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Report) for establishments with 250 or more employees which are required to routinely keep injury and illness records.
