MIOSHA Reminds Employers to Post 2015 Job-Related Injuries and Illnesses by April 30

February 1, 2016

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) is reminding Michigan employers they are required to post the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred in 2015.

Employers must post the MIOSHA Form 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) from February 1 to April 30, 2016. MIOSHA requires most Michigan employers with 11 or more employees to log and maintain records of work-related injuries and illnesses, and to make those records available during MIOSHA inspections of the workplace.

These records include MIOSHA Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses), MIOSHA Form 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Report) and MIOSHA Form 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses). 

Companies with no injuries and illnesses during the previous year are still required to post the MIOSHA Form 300A with zeros entered on the total line. A company executive must certify that the totals are correct and sign the form. This form is displayed wherever notices to employees are usually posted. Additional recordkeeping information, including general guidelines, forms and FAQs is available on the MIOSHA website at www.michigan.gov/recordkeeping.

 Please contact Wendy Block at 517/371-7678 or wblock@michamber.com with any questions about these requirements.
