Attention Safety Representatives
TWU Local 555 would like to remind you that February 1 is the deadline for Southwest Airlines to post OSHA Form 300A, the annual summary of work-related injuries and illnesses.
By February 1, Southwest Airlines must post Form 300A in a conspicuous place where notices to employees are customarily posted. The form must remain on display until April 30.
The annual summary compiles information recorded on OSHA Form 300, Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (also known as the OSHA 300 Log), during the previous calendar year. For example, the Form 300A posted from February 1 to April 30, 2014, must include injuries and illnesses recorded on the OSHA 300 Log from January 1, 2013, to December 31, 2013.
Every station must post the 300A, regardless of whether or not they had any recordable cases. In order to determine if a case is recordable OSHA says that the case must meet all four of the following tests:
- An injury or illness must have occurred;
- The injury or illness must be work-related;
- The injury or illness must be a new case; and
- The injury or illness must meet the general recording criteria.
A separate Form 300A must be completed and posted for each station.
If after February 1st you do not see a Form 300A posted in your station contact your Station Manager.
