Are You Compliant with OSHA’s Injury Posting Requirement?

February 5, 2019

Every February through April, businesses with more than 10 employees must post a summary of serious worker injuries and illnesses from the previous year, according to regulations from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

OSHA forms for reporting employee injuries are available online. This information must be submitted to OSHA by March 2, 2019, and also kept at the worksite for five years.

Employee injury data helps OSHA evaluate the safety of a workplace, understand industry hazards, and implement worker protections to reduce and eliminate hazards. Minor injuries requiring first aid only do not need to be recorded.
