California Employers: It's Time to Post Injury and Illness Summaries

Summaries must be posted through April 30.

State-run Cal/OSHA's requirement for employers to post 2018 annual summaries of injuries and illnesses begins on February 1.

The summaries are required to be sent to the agency each year beginning February through April 30.

Posting the summary may reveal patterns or potential hazards that need to be addressed and helps ensure workers are aware of work-related injuries and illnesses that occurred the previous year. More information on posting requirements or how to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses is available on the DIR's Employer Information webpage.

Instructions and form templates can be downloaded for free from Cal/OSHA’s Record Keeping Overview. The overview gives instructions on completing both the log (Form 300) and annual summary (Form 300A) of work-related injuries and illnesses. The annual summary must be placed in a visible and easily accessible area at each worksite. Current and former employees, as well as employee representatives, must be allowed to review the summary in its entirety.

The definitions and requirements for recordable work-related fatalities, injuries and illnesses are outlined in the California Code of Regulations, Title 8, sections 14300 through 14300.48. Employers are required to complete and post Form 300A even if no workplace injuries occurred.

Posting the summary may reveal patterns or potential hazards that need to be addressed and helps ensure workers are aware of work-related injuries and illnesses that occurred the previous year, according to the agency.
