OSHA: Employers Must Post Summaries of Injuries, Illnesses

OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, has reminded employers, including the Postal Service, of their obligation to post annual summaries of injuries and illnesses sustained by workers at their facilities, reports Gary Kloepfer, the union’s safety and health officer. Summaries for 2012 must be displayed from Feb. 1 to April 30 in a common area where notices for workers are typically posted.

The summaries, which are compiled on OSHA Form 300A, must list the number of job-related illnesses and injuries and must be certified by a “company executive.”
