OSHA is reminding employers that beginning Feb. 1, 2008, they must post a summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during 2007.

Employers are required to post OSHA Form 300A (summary). The 2007 summary must be posted from Feb. 1 to April 30, 2008.

The OSHA 300 logs provide employers and employees a broad view of where injuries and illnesses are occurring at their worksites, says Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke, Jr.

The summary must include the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2007 and were logged on the OSHA Form 300. To assist in calculating incidence rates, information about the annual average number of employees and total hours worked during the calendar year is also required.

If a company recorded no injuries or illnesses in 2007, the employer must enter "zero" on the total line. The form must be signed and certified by a company executive.

Form 300A should be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted.

Employers with ten or fewer employees and employers in certain industries are normally exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping and posting requirements.

A complete list of exempt industries in the retail, services, finance, insurance and real estate sectors is posted on the OSHA Web site (www.OSHA.gov).

Copies of OSHA Forms 300 and 300A are available on the OSHA Recordkeeping Web page in either Adobe PDF or Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet format.
