The California Department of Industrial Relations (“DIR”) requires most employers with 11 or more employees to post by February 1st a summary of job-related illnesses and injuries that occurred in the prior year.
The posting, which is often referred to as Form 300A or the Cal/OSHA Log 300 summary, must be posted wherever employee notices are usually posted. Even companies with no recordable injuries or illnesses in the previous year must post the summary.
If the employer has multiple locations, a separate Form 300A summary must be posted in each separate facility that is expected to remain in operation for at least another year.
A company executive must certify the accuracy and completeness of the information contained in the summary; therefore, it is critical that employers comply and provide accurate information.
You can find downloadable PDF or Excel versions of Cal/OSHA Form 300 and 300A on the DIR’s “Publications” section of its website, which can be found here. Just scroll down to where you see “Recordkeeping,” and links to all forms, in all formats, can be downloaded from there.
