OSHA Announces Updates to Employer Recordkeeping in 2016

Employers to post 300A Injury & Illness forms from February through April

The recent employer changes announced by OSHA will effect employers this year and will result in being non-compliant if these forms are not complete. Here is how the changes are to work:

Employers must now post their 300A (OSHA) form between February 1 and April 30, 2015.
Employers who staff ten or fewer employees and employers in low-hazard industries are typically exempt from requirements associated with illness and injury recordkeeping. However, with the January 2015 changes that went into effect, certain previously exempt industries are now covered.
