Injury Summary Posting Reminder

State Fund and RCAC want to remind policyholders to post form 300A, the Annual Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. Form 300A is a summary of Cal/OSHA Form 300, which logs work-related injuries and illnesses for the previous year.

California law requires employers to complete and post this summary for a three-month period between February 1 and April 30, even if no work-related injuries or illnesses occurred during the year. There are some exceptions for small employers and certain industries, which can be found through the links below.

Employers are legally required to record information about every work-related death, injury or illness that involves:

  • Loss of consciousness.
  • Restricted work activity or job transfer.
  • Days away from work.
  • Medical treatment beyond first aid.
They must also report significant work-related injuries and illnesses diagnosed by a physician or licensed health-care professional.

Employers must display the summary in a conspicuous location where notices to employees are customarily posted. A copy of the summary must also be made available to employees who move from worksite to worksite and employees who do not report to any fixed establishment on a regular basis. At the end of the three-month period, the summary should be taken down and kept on file for a period of five years following the year to which it pertains.

The Department of Industrial Relations says the summary is designed to create safety awareness in the workplace for employers and employees so similar injuries can be prevented in the future.
