Oregon OSHA requires that you post your company’s OSHA Form 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses from February 1 to April 30. It should be posted in a common area where all employees may view it.
The AGC Safety & Loss Control team is available for assistance. If you have any questions, please contact your consultant.
In other news…
Oregon OSHA recently sent a reminder to employers of their obligation to report serious accidents or fatalities. The notification allows the agency to investigate the working conditions that may have caused death or harm.
Employers are required to report a fatality within eight hours and report the overnight hospitalization of a worker within 24 hours. Under the Oregon rule, reporting an accident to a workers’ compensation carrier isn’t adequate and may still result in a failure to report citation.
To report an accident or fatality, call Oregon OSHA 24 hours a day at 1-800-922-2689 (toll-free). Leaving a message to make the report is sufficient under the rule.
