Employers subject to the recordkeeping requirements of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (generally those with more than 10 employees, except for employers in certain low-hazard industries) are reminded to post OSHAForm 300ASummary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, from February 1 to April 30, 2016.
The Form 300A lists the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during the previous year and must be posted even if no work-related injuries or illnesses occurred during the year. The summary must be certified by a company executive, and should be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted so that employees are aware of the injuries and illnesses occurring in the workplace.
Revised List of Exempt Industries and Effect on State Plans
As of January 2015, a final rule created a new list of industries that are partially exempt from keeping OSHA records. The rule maintains the exemption for any employer with 10 or fewer employees--regardless of its industry classification--from the requirement to routinely keep records of worker injuries and illnesses. 
However, please note that certain "state plan" states may not have formally adopted the new classifications. As such, establishments located in states that operate their own safety and health programs should check with their state plan for the implementation date of the requirements.
