Automotive Recyclers Must Post OSHA Form 300A

Matthew Snyder - Sunday, March 01, 2015

DOWNLOAD THE OSHA FORM 300A HERE that automotive recyclers need to post at their facilities between February 1 and April 30th, 2015.  Your summary must include the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2014 and be in a clearly visible location to all employees.  Form 300A reports a business' total number of fatalities, missed workdays, job transfers or restrictions, and injuries and illnesses as recorded on Form 300.  It also includes the number of employees and the hours they worked for the year.  If there were no recordable injuries or illnesses, a company must still post the form, with zeroes on the appropriate lines.

Also remember that  OSHA has instituted new injury and illness reporting rules that affect all employers in the United States, even if those employers are exempt from routine OSHA Recordkeeping requirements. Under the new rules, that went into effect on January 1, 2015, employers must report to OSHA all work-related fatalities within eight hours, and all inpatient hospitalizations, amputations and losses of an eye within 24 hours.
