OSHA 300 Log Summary for 2011

One of the most frequently cited regulations by OSHA is the injury and illness record keeping requirement.  The compliance with OSHA recordkeeping is a yearlong effort.

You must now total your 2011 data onto the OSHA 300-A Form (client login required) and post it in a conspicuous location for employee review from February 1 - April 30, 2012.

On the Lovell Safety Management web page you can find a narrated seminar that was developed to assist you in completing the OSHA 300 log.

Please contact your LSM Safety Representative or the LSM Safety Office if you need any assistance.

A Comprehensive Approach to Workforce Health

From the CDC, an excellent article:

The health of the U.S. workforce is an issue of importance to both workers and their employers. There is a wealth of evidence on occupational safety and health hazards that may potentially affect workers’ health. In addition to these hazards, personal characteristics and conditions, such as age, gender, genetics, or weight, can impact a person’s work and interact with workplace hazards.

 Thanks as always to NIOSH publications and CDC for important and timely info!
