2021 OSHA Injury & Illness Reporting Due March 2 for Certain Employers

Posted on 1/7/2022 by Lauren Scott

With the start of a new year comes essential reporting deadlines for environmental, health, and safety pros. Covered employers must submit data on work-related injuries and illnesses to OSHA by March 2 for calendar year 2021. 

Employers who meet one or more of the following criteria must submit Form 300A:
  • 250 or more employees and are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records; or
  • 20 to 249 employees classified in specific industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses, including agriculture, construction, manufacturing, waste treatment and disposal, and many others.
Forms must be submitted electronically. Any organization or facility that meets these requirements must create an account in the Injury Tracking Application (ITA).

What Injuries and Illnesses Are Recordable?

Employers in non-exempt industries with 10 or more full-time-equivalent employees (including temporary workers and contractors) must record each fatality, injury, or illness that:
  1. Is work-related,
  2. Is a new case, and
  3. Results in death; days away from work, on restricted work, or transferred from usual work (DART); medical treatment beyond first aid, loss of consciousness; or a "significant injury or illness" as diagnosed by a medical professional.

Is COVID-19 a Recordable Work-related Illness?

Employers must record work-related cases of COVID-19 illness on their Form 300 logs if the following requirements are met:
  1. The case is a confirmed case of COVID-19;
  2. The case is work-related (as defined by 29 CFR 1904.5); and
  3. The case involves one or more relevant recording criteria.
Hospitalizations: Employers must report a hospitalization related to COVID-19 if it occurs within 24 hours of the SARS-CoV-2 workplace exposure.

Deaths: Employers must report a fatality to OSHA if it occurs within 30 days of the SARS-CoV-2 workplace exposure.

OSHA Injury & Illness Reporting Forms

OSHA Form 300 is a log that employers must keep of workplace injury and illness. OSHA Form 300A provides a generalized summary of work-related injuries and illnesses, based on the employer’s log. Form 301 is the Injury and Illness Incident Report which must be filled out when a recordable work-related injury or illness has occurred.
