President Biden is quickly moving towards changing the legal landscape for employers, from COVID-related measures to overtime laws. These updates however should not detract from existing deadlines such as the upcoming February 1, 2021 requirement to post the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Form 300A log in the workplace.
Workers must complete a Form 300A log for each physical worksite (currently excluding home/remote worksites) from February 1 to April 30, 2021. The form should include information surrounding workplace injuries and illnesses, including, but not limited to, death, loss of consciousness, and medical treatment beyond first aid. A full list of the information that must be posted and ultimately reported to the federal government is available on the OSHA website.
It should be noted that certain employers are exempt from the Form 300A posting and reporting requirements (for example, legal services). That being said, even exempt employers should be sure to track work-related fatalities, in-patient hospitalizations, and amputations, among other things for reporting to OSHA. This carveout is extremely important, particularly during COVID when many employees have been hospitalized due to the virus.
Feel free to reach out to me to discuss the Form 300A log or your related obligations.
