Form 300A information comes from Cal/OSHA Log 300, which details work-related incidents. The summary includes information on types of injuries and illnesses that occurred, and their extent and outcome. It is intended to alert workers to possible hazards, and includes average number of employees at the workplace and hours used to calculate injury and illness rates.
This requirement applies to employers with 11 or more workers, excluding low-hazard establishments in the retail, services, finance and real estate sectors.
Employers who experienced no workplace injuries or illnesses should post the form with zeroes across the total lines.
They also must mail or otherwise provide an annual summary to employees who do not report at least weekly to a location where the summary is posted.
