OSHA 300 Form and OSHA 300A Form


The OSHA 300 Form is used to classify work-related injuries and illnesses and to note the extent and severity of each case. When an incident occurs, use the Log to record specific details about what happened and how it happened.

The Summary a separate form/ Form 300A shows the totals for the year in each category. At the end of the year, post the Summary in a visible location so that your employees are aware of the injuries and illnesses occurring in their workplace.

Employers must keep a Log (OSHA log) for each establishment or site. If you have more than one establishment, you must keep a separate and for each physical location that is expected to be in operation for one year or longer.


Cases listed on the Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses are not necessarily eligible for workers’ compensation or other insurance benefits. Listing a case on the Log does not mean that the employer or worker was at fault or that an OSHA standard was violated.


OSHA Form Deadline

Beginning February 1 of each year, covered employers with 10 or more employees must post the OSHA-required Form 300A, which summarizes an employer’s reportable injuries and illnesses for the prior year. The Form 300-A posting period is February 1- April 30. An employer subject to this requirement must post the OSHA Form 300-A even if the employer had no reportable injuries/illnesses in the prior year. In addition to the posting requirement, employees with no fixed work site or no access to posted sites must be provided with a copy of the report.
