Injury & Illness Summaries Must Be Posted on February 1, 2013
February 1, 2013 employers must post a current summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred last year in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Employers are only required to post the Summary (OSHA 300 Form) -- from February 1, 2013 to April 30, 2013.
The summary must list the total numbers of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2012 and were logged on the OSHA 300 form. Employment information about annual average number of employees and total hours worked during the calendar year is also required to assist in calculating incidence rates per OSHA. Companies with no recordable injuries or illnesses in 2012 must post the form with zeros on the total line. All establishment summaries must be certified by a company executive.
The form is to be displayed in a common area wherever notices to employees are usually 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. http://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/index.html Article VI section 6.08 of the IBEW Local 701 agreement requires that accident reports must be submitted to the IBEW Local 701 / NE NECA Safety Committee. Submitting the modified OSHA 300 log (see links below) fulfills your obligation as a contractor to submit accident reports. Please note that the modified form does not substitute the original OSHA form to be posted and is provided to you to assist compliance with the 701 agreement.
We have a modified version of the OSHA 300 log for your convenience which provides confidentiality of employees by omitting names.
