News Notes: Time To Prepare And Post OSHA Form 200

During the month of February each year, most public and private employers are required to post OSHA Form 200 in a conspicuous place. This ‘Log and Summary of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses’ calls for details about on-the-job injuries and illnesses that occurred between January 1 and December 31 of the preceding year. Unless you’re in a designated low-hazard industry, you’re required to post the log if you had 11 or more employees at any time during 1996. Remember to fold the form before posting to cover up the names of injured workers. Contact your local Cal/OSHA Consultation Service for more details.
