Employers Must Post Job-Related Injuries Summary
HR Watchdog would like to remind employers that they must post a summary of job-related injuries and illnesses from 2012 at their place of business by February 1.
Employers are required to post only the summary (Form 300A) — not the Form 300 (Log) — from February 1 to April 30. The summary must list the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in the previous year and were logged on the Form 300. Companies with no recordable injuries or illnesses in the previous year must post the summary with zeros on the “total” line. A company executive must certify all establishment summaries.
The form is to be displayed in a common area where notices to employees usually are posted. Employers must make a copy of the summary available to employees who move from worksite to worksite, such as construction workers, and employees who do not report to any fixed establishment on a regular basis.
HRCalifornia makes a free Log 300 wizard available to customers to use to determine whether a business is subject to recordkeeping requirements. Also, check out HRCalifornia's forms page for free Cal/OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301.
