Risk Management Bulletin: OSHA 2017 Form 300A due July 1st
REMINDER: It’s time to electronically file OSHA 2017 FORM 300A!
All covered establishments must electronically submit their 2017 Form 300A data to OSHA by July 1, 2018. Employers can view their submitted 2016 Form 300A summary information, but they cannot edit or submit additional 2016 data on this website.
Covered establishments with 250 or more employees are only required to provide their 2017 Form 300A summary data. OSHA is not accepting Form 300 and 301 information at this time. OSHA announced that it will issue a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to reconsider, revise, or remove provisions of the “Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses” final rule, including the collection of the Forms 300/301 data. The Agency is currently drafting that NPRM and will seek comment on those provisions.
The Injury Tracking Application (ITA) is accessible from the ITA launch page, where you are able to provide the Agency your 2017 OSHA Form 300A information by July 1, 2018.
Recap of Electronic Submission Requirements:
Who: Establishments with 250 or more employees that are currently required to keep OSHA injury and illness records, and establishments with 20-249 employees that are classified in certain industries with historically high rates of occupational injuries and illnesses.
What: Covered establishments must electronically submit information from their 2017 OSHA Form 300A.
When: In 2018, covered establishments must submit information from their completed 2017 Form 300A by July 1, 2018. Beginning in 2019 and every year thereafter, covered establishments must submit the information by March 2.
Failure to electronically submit the Form 300A could lead to a substantial fine from OSHA. In February, OSHA issued a memorandum to all regional administrators reminding them that failure to submit reports could lead to “other-than-serious” violations for workplaces and potential fines of $12,934.
