Employers, Be Sure To Maintain Your OSHA Logs

Below is a copy and paste from an OSHA article reminding employers to post Injury logs. OSHA is omnipresent, so take a few moments to read the following and put these records together.


OSHA REMINDS EMPLOYERS TO POST INJURY/ILLNESS SUMMARIES

OSHA is reminding employers to post OSHA's Form 300A, which summarizes the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during 2012 and were logged on OSHA Form 300, Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. The summary must be posted between Feb. 1 and April 30, 2013, and should be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted.

Employers with 10 or fewer employees and employers in certain industries are normally exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping and posting requirements. A complete list of exempt industries in the retail, services, finance, insurance and real estate sectors can be found at http://s.dol.gov/YP. Read the news release for more information on recordkeeping requirements:
