The OSHA Log annual posting requirement has been with us for decades now, and the process hasn’t changed. Every employer with 10 or more employees must keep Cal-OSHA Form 300 up to date with employee injuries during the year. Form 300A is the annual summary of the Form 300 data that must be posted for 3 months each year beginning on Feb 1.
Here are helpful links from California Department of Industrial Relations:
- Cal/OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301
- Appendix A-Form 300: Log of work-Related Injuries and Illness
- Appendix B-Form 300A: Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses
- Appendix C-Form 301: Injury and Illness Incident Report
- Appendix D-Instructions to Complete Cal/OSHA Form 300
- Appendix E-Instructions to Complete Cal/OSHA Form 300 A
- Appendix F-Instructions to complete Cal/OSHA Form 301
- Appendix G-Worksheet to Help You Fill Out the Annual Summary (Optional Form)
Now, beginning in 2018, employers in specific class codes with 20 or more employees must go to the further effort of posting the 300A summary data online. The 2017 data is required to have been posted by December 31, 2018. The summary data for 2018 must be filed by March 2, 2019.
If you have 20 or more employees, and wish to know if your class code requires you to do online filing, here is the link to the OSHA List of classifications that must comply. Once you have determined that you are required to e-file, here is the link to the OSHA website to do so.
