OSHA Accepting Electronic Reports After July 1 Deadline


OVERVIEW

In 2016, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a final rule that requires certain establishments to electronically report information from their injury and illness records. Under the rule, electronic reports on 2017 data were due by July 1, 2018.

If an establishment subject to the rule missed this deadline, OSHA will still accept its electronic report on 2017 data from Form 300A but will flag the submission as “late.” OSHA is not accepting any electronic submissions of data from Forms 300 and 301 and will not enforce the deadline for those forms. On July 30, 2018, OSHA issued a proposed rule to remove the final rule’s requirements for data from Forms 300 and 301.  

ACTION STEPS

  • Covered establishments that missed the July 1, 2018, electronic reporting deadline should immediately submit their 2017 Form 300A data through OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA).  

  • Covered establishments should not submit any 2017 data from Forms 300 and 301 through the ITA.
