NYSIF reminds policyholders that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires covered employers to post OSHA's Form 300A, which summarizes the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses logged during 2015.
The summary must be posted between Feb. 1 and April 30, 2016, and should be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted.
Employers with 10 or fewer employees and employers in specific low-hazard industries are normally exempt from federal OSHA injury and illness recordkeeping and posting requirements.
However, due to changes in OSHA's recordkeeping requirements that went into effect Jan. 1, 2015, certain previously exempt industries are now covered.
