Employers must post 300A injury/illness summary form February through April

OSHA is reminding covered employers to post OSHA’s Form 300A, which summarizes the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during 2014 and were logged on OSHA’s Form 300, the log of work-related injuries and illnesses. The summary must be posted betweenFeb. 1 and April 30, 2015, and should be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted.

Employers with 10 or fewer employees and employers in specific low-hazard industries are normally exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping and posting requirements. Due to changes in OSHA’s recordkeeping requirements that went into effect Jan. 1, 2015, certain previously exempt industries are now covered. Lists of both exempt and newly covered industries are available on OSHA’s website. Visit the Updates to OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule Web page for more information on recordkeeping requirements.

Technical Difficulties

Please be aware that the e-mail system @ibew1212.org was experiencing some technical difficulties.  

If you have sent any e-mails from 1/12/15 to 1/13/15 please resend them as the office has not received

them as of yet.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  Thank you for your patience.
