Certain businesses are required to publicly post the 2017 results of their workplace injuries and illnesses reports by Feb. 1, according to OSHA rules.
The requirement applies to employers that keep track of workplace injuries and illnesses on OSHA Form 300 and have more than 10 employees. Specifically, applicable companies must post their statistics (Form 300A) where company notices are normally displayed. Failure to do so can result in fines as high as $12,934 per violation.
According to the news website Construction Dive, work-related deaths and injuries or illnesses that involve a worker’s loss of consciousness must be recorded as well as restricted work activity or transfer to another position, days away from work, or medical treatment beyond first aid.
