2022 Reflections and OSHA 300
It’s been a crazy year with so much multi-tasking, pivoting and adjusting. But it’s time to take a deep breath and tackle your OSHA 300 Log! Here are some quick tips:
- Make sure all the injuries are listed and columns A–F are filled out completely and accurately.
- Be sure ONLY one column in G-J is checked for each entry.
- Update any missed workdays or restricted duty days in columns K and L. If the columns total 180, you can stop counting!
- Classify the injuries in column M.
- Now total column G-M.
That’s all, it’s complete. Now transfer the 300 information onto the 300A, complete the rest of the company location, and ask your CEO to sign it!
Don’t forget to take a moment to do a trend analysis. Can you identify specific tasks that contributed to most of your incidents? Or perhaps there is a specific type of injury or body part that was injured? This is valuable information as you outline your 2023 safety and health activities and share some insight with your CEO. What can you change or implement to reduce those incidents? If you are one of the fortunate ones that hasn’t had any OSHA recordable incidents, what do your first-aid logs indicate? If you need assistance brainstorming ideas to minimize the injuries, reach out to one of our ESH professionals for a quick call at 614.890.0800, ext. 200 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here’s to less injuries in 2023!
Requirement reminder: Post your 300A by February 1, complete with CEO signature, and submit by March 2.
