OSHA 300-A Log

Question:

I know I am supposed to take my OSHA 300-A log down on April 30.  How long do I have to keep it after I take it down?

Answer:

You are correct!  The log can come down on April 30, but according to OSHA Standard – 29 CFR -1904.33(a), employers must save their OSHA 300 Log, the Form 300-A (annual summary), and the Form 301 Incident Report forms for 5 (five) years. The stored OSHA 300 Logs must be updated by the employer to include any newly discovered recordable injuries or illnesses…even after the log had been posted.
