February 1 is the deadline for employers to post a record of 2002's work-related injuries and illnesses.

If your workplace has more than ten employees and you are not in a low-hazard industry, you are required to post the OSHA 300 log summary log on February 1, and leave it on the bulletin board until April 30. The log is a summary of all work-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in your workplace during 2002.

This is the first time the OSHA 300 log has been posted. It replaces the similar OSHA 200 log as a result of OSHA's revised recordkeeping regulations. The OSHA 300 log contains more information than the old OSHA 200 log.

By law, the information in the log is supposed to be available for inspection by employees all year long, but employers are only required to display it in public for three months.

For more information about the OSHA 300 log and OSHA regulations concerning the recording of work-related injuries and illnesses, including a list of industries that are exempt from the annual posting requirement, visit www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/index.html.
