This is a friendly reminder to post your OSHA 300A forms.
The Recordkeeping Standard requires employers to post their OSHA 300A forms from February 1 through April 30 each year.
Depending on the establishment and the scope of work, employers may keep two sets of logs; one for each project lasting a year or more in duration, and, an aggregate log for all the work conducted by that employer.
Additional clarification from the standard is below:
3. Construction work sites that are:
