Due July 1: Employers Must Submit OSHA Form 300A Data Electronically

Posted on 6/28/2018 by Roger Marks

By July 1, 2018 (this Sunday), some employers must electronically submit OSHA Form 300A using the Agency’s new online Injury Tracking Application. Only information from employers’ 2017 OSHA Form 300A is due.

OSHA is not accepting data from Forms 300 or 301 yet and is, in fact, drafting a rule to “reconsider, revise, or remove” provisions of the Final Rule that mandated electronic reporting requirements for injury and illness data.

Starting in 2019, data from Form 300A will be due on or before March 1 each year.


Who Must Report?

The electronic reporting of Form 300A data applies to two group of employers:
 
  • Establishments with 250 or more employees that are required to keep OSHA injury and illness records
  • Establishments with 20–249 employees in certain high-risk industries that must submit data from OSHA Form 300A

OSHA’s Electronic Injury and Illness Reporting Rule

Finalized in May 2016, OSHA’s electronic injury and illness reporting rule  requires certain employers to submit electronic injury and illness data logged throughout the year on OSHA Forms 300, 300A, and/or 301. Click the link above for more information about what’s in that OSHA Final Rule. 
 
Since being finalized, the rulemaking has faced delays, both to the reporting and recordkeeping requirements and to the anti-retaliation provisions designed to protect employees from being fired or punished for reporting unsafe work conditions.
 
OSHA is now working to rescind or revise the requirements in that Final Rule and states a proposal to do just that is forthcoming.
