Utah employers with 11 or more employees are reminded by Occupational Safety and Health Administration officials that from Feb. 1 to March 1 they must post the total number of job-related injuries and illnesses that occurred during 1988, according to Bart Chadwick, regional OSHA administrator in Denver.
Officials of the Utah Occupational Safety and Health Division of the State Industrial Commission said Utah employers need to post the last page or right-hand portion of OSHA Form 200 called "Log and Summary of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses."The form must be posted in a place where other notices to employees are customarily placed, he said.
Companies that had no injuries in 1988 still must post the form, but zeros are placed on the total line. The person responsible for preparing the annual summary must certify the totals are correct and sign the form.
Chadwick said that during February employers must give a copy of the summary to workers who move from worksite to worksite and don't report to any fixed establishment on a regular basis.
Employers with 10 or fewer employees are exempt from the above requirements, as are certain types of industries that have been ruled as safe.
