February 1st is right around the corner, which means it's almost time to post your OSHA 300A log. This log summarizes all OSHA Recordable incidents that took place at each of your company's locations during the previous year. The log must be signed and certified by a company executive and then posted in a common area for employees to view from February first through April 30th.
Safety professionals should also be aware that earlier this year, OSHA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that drastically reduces most electronic recordkeeping requirements. However, organizations that previously met the electronic reporting requirements to submit their 300A Form to OSHA electronically are still required to do so by March 2nd, 2019.
This public disclosure is slated to urge companies to improve their workplace safety measures and serve as a valuable resource for employees, clients, researchers and the general public.
