California Employers Must Post Form 300A

As a reminder for California employers, all employers that are required to maintain injury and illness records must post Form 300A by February 1 of the year following the year covered by the records. It must remain posted at the worksite until April 30 of that year.

Employers must record those work-related injuries and illnesses that result in:

  • death,
  • loss of consciousness,
  • days away from work,
  • restricted work activity or job transfer, or
  • medical treatment beyond first aid.

Employers must record any significant work-related injury or illness that is diagnosed by a physician or other licensed health care professional, as well as any work-related case involving cancer, chronic irreversible disease, a fractured or cracked bone, or a punctured eardrum.
