February 1 Posting Requirement – Form 300A
HRWatchdog would like to remind employers that they must post the Form 300A summary of job-related injuries and illnesses from 2015 at their place of business no later than February 1, 2016.
Employers are required to post only the summary (Form 300A) — not the Form 300 (Log) — by February 1 and keep it posted until 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 summary 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, visit HRCalifornia’s forms page to download a free Form 300A.
