Reminder to Employers: Post New Injury/Illness Summaries Today
Beginning February 1, 2006, employers must post a summary of the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in the prior year. Employers are only required to post the OSHA Summary Form 300A — not the OSHA 300 Log — from February 1, 2006 to April 30, 2006. Copies of the OSHA forms 300, 300A and 301 are available for downloading on the OSHA Recordkeeping Web page1. Employers who fail to post these summaries may subject themselves to fines for noncompliance.

For more information on OSHA compliance or OSHA litigation, please contact Steven O. Grubbs at Sheehy, Serpe & Ware, P.C. at (713) 951-1014. You may also visit the Firm’s website at www.sswpc.com for more information.

Mr. Grubbs is Board Certified in Labor and Employment law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and regularly assists employers with OSHA law matters.
