Posting of OSHA Injury and Illness Summary Required
Added 02-01-13
 

Employers are reminded that they must post a summary of work-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2012. The N.C. Department of Labor requires the summary be posted from Feb. 1 through April 30.

Most employers must keep a Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (Form 300) that records work-related fatalities, injuries and illnesses. The Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (Form 300A) is compiled from the data on the log. Companies without any injuries and illnesses should post the summary with zeroes on the total lines. A company executive must certify that they have examined the OSHA 300 Log and that they reasonably believe that the annual summary is correct and complete.

Companies that had 10 or fewer employees at all times during the previous calendar year are exempt from keeping injury and illness logs and posting summaries. Certain businesses classified in a specific low-hazard retail, service, finance, insurance or real estate industry are also exempt from keeping injury and illness logs and posting summaries unless requested to do so for survey purposes.

For more information about recording criteria or for a list of exempt industries, contact the NC Dept. of Labor, Education, Training and Technical Assistance Bureau at 1-800-625-2267 or locally at 919-807-2875. To download a free copy of the OSHA 300, OSHA 300A or OSHA 301, as well as recordkeeping instructions, visit DOL’s website at www.nclabor.com, click on the Publications tab, then click on the Forms link.
