Employers Reminded to Post Job-Related Injury Summaries

OSHA reminds employers with 11 or more employees to post a summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses from 1999.

Employers with 11 or more employees must post, during the month of February, a summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 1999, according to OSHA.

The summary must remain posted from Feb. 1 to March 1, 2000.

Since 1972, employers have been required to post the annual totals of the information contained on the right-hand portion of the OSHA Form 200. The form is displayed wherever notices to employees are usually posted.

The right-hand portion of the OSHA Form 200 includes information contained on the type of injury and illness, extent and outcome. This information alerts employees of possible hazards.

Companies with no injuries and illnesses in 1999 must post the form with zeros on the total line.

Employers with 10 or fewer employees and employers in certain industry groups are normally exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping and posting requirements.
