The February 1, 2013 date for posting the Iowa OSHA Form 300A is almost here. If you have not done so already, its time to create an annual summary of injuries and illnesses recorded on your Iowa OSHA 300 Log. Be sure to review your Iowa OSHA 300 Log entries as extensively as necessary to make sure they are complete and accurate, and correct any deficiencies.
Completing the Form 300A:To complete the Form 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, total the columns on the OSHA 300 Log, enter the companys name, establishment name and address, annual average number of employees covered by the OSHA 300 Log, and the total hours worked by all employees covered by the OSHA 300 Log. The form is available for downloading from federal OSHA at http://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/new-osha300form1-1-04.pdf and http://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/new-osha300form1-1-04.xls. Note that the form must be posted even if there are no reportable injuries!
Certification of the Form 300A:The Form 300A must be certified by a company executive, which means:
- an owner of the company (only if the company is a sole proprietorship or partnership);
- an officer of the corporation;
- the highest ranking company official working a the establishment; or
