OSHA Reminds Employers to Post their Summary on Work Related Injuries
Cal/OSHA, also known as the Department of Industrial Relations' Division of Occupational Safety and Health or DIR/DOSH, reminds all employers in California to post a summary of work related injuries and accidents that occurred in 2010. This log has to be presented at their place of business.

The log is available on the official website of Department of Industrial Relations and gives a complete overview of the type and severity of injuries and illnesses that take place at the workplace. All the employers are expected to post the summary from 1st of February through 30th of April for employee review. All the employees, including the former ones, along with their representatives have complete right to review the Cal/OSHA Form 300A at any time.

The 300A form requires the employers to fill in each and every detail and report the number of injuries every year. This should be done even if no work related injuries have occurred at the work place. The nature of the accident or illness has to be recorded in these logs. The severity of the accident along with the number of days missed by employees due to the illness also has to be included in these records. Those employers who need more guidance on improving their safety programs can visit the official website of DIR.
