What the heck is OSHA Logs and how does it affect me and my business? How much does it cost? Do I really need this? Is it just one more thing to do or not do?

 These are just a few of the questions that we get when we mention OSHA Logs. Well, let’s start with the basics first and then we’ll start diving a bit! So, let’s start with what OSHA is first and go from there.

 OSHA is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and an agency of the Department of Labor. It was signed into law in 1970 to give safe and healthy working conditions for men and women in the states and certain territories. OSHA was also created to protect workers from a large range of serious hazards and to enforce its standards.

 OSHA also requires employers of a certain size and industry to keep records of serious work-related injuries and illnesses using OSHA forms 300, 300A and 301. The information recorded provides employers, employees and OSHA with data that helps them to implement worker protections to reduce and eliminate certain hazards in the workplace.

 Did you know that on July 1st OSHA required that certain businesses submit their completed 2017 Form 300A? If you didn’t you know now!
