  • Time to Update Cal/OSHA’s Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses

California employers are required to display their annual summary of work-related injuries and illnesses for 2023 in a visible and easily accessible area at each worksite by February 1, 2024. The posting should be done using Cal/OSHA’s Form 300A, and must be posted each year from February 1 through April 30. Employers are required to complete and post Form 300A even if no workplace injuries occurred.

An overview regarding both the log (Form 300) and the annual summary (Form 300A) can be found on Cal/OSHA’s Recordkeeping Overview page.

Cal/OSHA requires employers to record work-related fatalities, injuries, and illnesses.  An injury or illness is considered work-related if an event or exposure in the work environment caused or contributed to the condition or significantly aggravated a preexisting condition. Employers must record those work-related injuries and illness that result in:

  • Death,
  • Loss of consciousness,
  • Days away from work,
  • Restricted work activity or job transfer, or
  • Medical treatment beyond first aid.

Additionally, any work-related COVID-19 fatality or illness meeting the above criteria must be documented on an employer’s Form 300, 300A, 301, or equivalent forms.
