OSHA Reporting Deadline

Source: gstockstudio - 123RF

March 2, 2019, is the deadline for electronically reporting your OSHA Form 300A data for the calendar year 2018.

Under the current recordkeeping rule, the initial deadline for electronic submission of information from OSHA Forms 300 and 301 by covered establishments with 250 or more employees was July 1, 2018.

However, OSHA has published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to amend its recordkeeping regulation to remove the requirement to electronically submit to OSHA information from the OSHA Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) and OSHA Form 301 (Injury and Illness Incident Report) for establishments with 250 or more employees which are required to routinely keep injury and illness records.

OSHA will not enforce this deadline for these two forms without further notice while this rulemaking is underway.

If you have fewer than 10 employees or are on a list of low-hazard industries, such as dental offices, advertising services, and car dealers, you are excluded.

After certifying the 300A, OSHA’s regulations require the certified copy of the 300A Summary Form be posted in the workplace for three months, through April 30.
