Remove Your Job-Related Injuries Summary
Breaking news: Employers can actually take down a posting!
April is coming to a close. It’s perfectly OK to remove the Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (known as the Form 300A), which must be posted annually at your place of business from February 1 through April 30.
Although the posting period is over, you are still required to retain your Form 300A summaries for five years following the end of the calendar year that these records cover.
Some of the information required on the form includes the number of days that injured or sick employees spent away from work during the previous year and the different types of injuries or illnesses suffered.
The form is a required workplace posting and is intended to give employees the opportunity to review any injuries or illnesses that took place at their worksite in the prior year. The form must be displayed in a common location where notices to employees usually are posted.
