Annual Injury Listing Due Now, OSHA Says

If you are an employer with 10 or more employees and aren’t in a nonexempt industry, you need to get moving to post your list of workplace injuries from 2014 if you haven’t done so already.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recordkeeping rule, employers must complete and post their 2014 annual summary of work-related injuries and illnesses by Feb. 1, 2015, and must keep it posted in a common area until April 30, 2015.

To assist in calculating  incidence rates, information about the annual average number of employees and  total hours worked during the calendar year is also required. If a company  recorded no injuries or illnesses in 2014, the employer must enter “zero” on the  total line.

Employers with 10 or fewer employees and in certain industries are exempt from the recordkeeping and posting rules. Employers subject to the rule must report all work-related fatalities within 8 hours and report all work-related in-patient hospitalizations, amputations and loss of an eye within 24 hours to OSHA.
