Forms 300, 300A, 301 are available on OSHA's Illness Recordkeeping Forms Web page. The log includes the total numbers of job-related injuries and illnesses from 2012 logged on the OSHA 300 form. In addition, it includes the number of workers and hours worked for the year. For non-exempt employers, Form 300A must be posted even if there were no recordable incidents in 2013.
Company executives must sign the log and post it in a common area for the duration of Feb 1 to April 30 timeline and copies should be made available to employees who will not see the form in its posting area. Some businesses, like establishments with 10 or fewer employees, as well as certain industry sectors, are partially exempt from OSHA Recordkeeping requirements - See the exemption list.
