OSHA requires many employers to maintain a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses with OSHA Form 300A. Employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses from 2017 by February 1, 2018. The summary must be certified by a company executive and publicly posted from February through April in a common area where other employee notices are usually posted. The form must be posted even if no work-related incidents occurred during the preceding year.
