Did you know that every February, federal and New York State laws require campus Administration to post a record of all reportable injuries and illnesses that occurred on your campus the previous year?
Throughout the year, a record must be kept of injuries and illnesses in a list known as a DOSH 900 Log or OSHA 200 Log. From February 1 to April 30 of every year, one of these logs must be posted in a public area on your campus. It can usually be found on a bulletin board near Human Resources.
These logs provide the number of employees injured, the severity of the illness and the amount of lost or restricted workdays as well as titles and work locations. They help us to identify unsafe areas, determine what kinds of injuries and illnesses occur most frequently and also give us the ammunition we need to press harder for better conditions for everyone.
You owe it to yourself to take a few moments to go check out what is happening in your workplace environment. Your Health is your Wealth! If you do not see a DOSH 900 Log or OSHA 200 Log posted, please contact us ASAP!
